... wiped out by a coach who pulled in sharply after overtaking us, forgetting he had twenty feet of coach behind him! had to brake heavily and swerve onto hard shoulder!!! - idiot) Having not found anywhere en route to have our picnic lunch, we booked in to the Sav Hotel and picnicked there! Walked into Bologna town, about 30 minutes, so sat for beer and coffee to rest a while. Our initial impressions ...
... don't get in a middle of the range airport hotel in
Australia that is for sure.
Checked in and got to my room, small but
again nice, I spied the two things that I had been dreaming of almost since I
left Melbourne, a shower and a proper bed. I have to say that few showers have
felt so good and it was so nice to feel clean again…
I hadn’t felt tired ...
... we have been to Venice. Once we got back to campsite we were happy to be alive and sure were ready for some more drinks and our masquerade party!! The lace demonstration we had was great, the lady provided us with lots of laughs about the value of lace to finding the right husband! The endless items of Milano glass were beautiful.

Hi family- We are having a blast! Allesandro's family is just like "my big fat Greek wedding" they are so loving and consider us family. We have been on the go since we got here! I have so many funny stories already, but my Internet is not great, so I want to post pictures while I have a ...
After Monaco we left for the leaning tower of Pisa. This was better then we expected. The detail on the tower was extraordinary.
We spent some time exploring the building and surrounds. It was another warm day, about 27 degrees.
One thing we noted which is quite annoying is the amount of people trying to sell imitation products. Apparently if you get caught buying any imitations ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel il Guercino Bologna
Terrible location, unfriendly staff
The hotel was ok at best! The rooms were modestly clean. The staff was completely worthless - unfriendly and unhelpful. The location was horrific! I did not feel safe in the location. Cute entrance and lobby and that was it. Bologna was pretty much closed down and all we saw were some pretty shady characters. Even the restaurant next to the hotel was closed. There was no parking and luckily our car was there the next morning. We checked out earlier than expected because we simply could not stay a day longer. We will never go back!
Not a great hotel but the restaurant next door...
This hotel left something to be desired - the room was small and the bedspread smelled of stale smoke. The walls were very thin, spent half the night listening to man in next room coughing all night and the staff weren't particularly helpful. However, the restaurant next door - Ristorante San Luigi was excellent - think I had my best meal while in Italy there. The food and restaurant staff were wonderful. Would I stay at this hotel again - no; would I go back to the restaurant - in a heartbeat!
A charming and personable hotel
Here for the last weekend of February 2004. Arrived during a bad snow storm, luckily the hotel had off street parking. The hotel and our rooms were warm and cosy, the staff really helpful. The manager was a gentleman. He was very attentive and ran after my aunt to insist that she take the last of the hotel umbrellas. Due to the heavy snow, we could not get to our dinner reservations in the centro storico. We ate in the restaurant next door, Ristorante San Luigi, which didn't look at all promising from the outside, but boy was I wrong. But then that's Bologna, fine food everywhere.
