On Friday we headed for sant Pierre in the alps, hoping to spend 3 days visiting Parco Gran Paradiso and viewing the mountains. But the fates intervened. Firstly, our B&B B Barberi had the kindest, most helpful host who spent much time dialoging with me through the I translate app, searching for weather forecasts and suggesting itineraries that were not too demanding. But, alas, she could not change the weather, nor the hard as a rock mattress that failed to bring sleep. So, with reluctance, we moved on. Hotel Langhe, set in a green area just on the fringe of the old Roman city of Alba suited fine for 2 days, enabling us to visit the town, tour the extensive Roman ruins, and, for me to get a haircut.

... glory. We spent a number of hours wandering the palace and gardens, and only just scratched the surface, such is the scale of the complex. It would be quite easy to spend an entire day there to do a comprehensive tour.

After sleeping off the previous nights blowout, we headed back into Verona's original city centre.
The first stop is the jewel in Verona's crown, Arena di Verona, a 2,000 year-old Roman ampitheatre in Piazza Bra still in regular use today. In fact it was in the process of being setup for an opera performance in a few days time. We climbed all over the ampitheatre trying to imagine what it ...
... the Medieval village and went on a short sight-seeing cruise on the River Po. It was a fascinating tour, but there is simply far too much information and history to communicate in this little blog.
For dinner we headed to a place called Eataly, a huge high-end food market containing a series of restaurants and a massive range of delicacies like you’ve never seen in one place before. I could have spent ...
... district. There are a myriad of small villages on the hilltops and some in the valleys, all of which are entirely surrounded by vineyards. We stopped and walked around the villages of Barbaresco, Neive, Verduno & Roddino to take in the sights. If you ignore the cars, the quaint villages seemed to be trapped in time, and many of the castles and churches date back to the 15th & 16th centuries.
