At the start of our last day in Turin, we headed across town to the new(ish) Juventus Stadium for a guided tour through the facilities.

After another beautiful home-cooked lunch (risotto), we drove about an hour to the Langa ...

We were quite happy that we had stumbled across the concert. Ever since we had arrived in Italy Eli had been giving renditions of speaking in an Italian accent. Apparently you needed to talk like that or they wouldn’t understand you! We scurried back to the apartment and rang the buzzer for Mike to let us in. We enjoyed some cookies left out for us before settling in to ...
