... for the St Peter festival. Hard to move. Everyone with families. Bars full but still no one eating. Found a couple of restaurants around 10 that seemed be serving food but they had reservations and were fully booked. Eventually returned to our hotel and ate a very nice meal in the hotel restaurant.
