Abstinence does not make the heart grow fonder !

... a day and a half. Temptation and the thought that she had only 6 weeks left of her double gap year meant that these were sacrifices too far. This came as a great relief to Signor. The idea that Signora, without chocolate or red wine, could become a reforming zealot - never entered Signor's head, not even for a second!!!

Empty Chairs at Empty Tables

Super weird being on your own. Everyone else is gone. It is too quiet. We are the only foreigners left here. Equal parts terrifying and liberating. At least my friends aren't dead because they wanted a revolution. They are all just on planes home. Just a mere 4000 miles.
I suppose at some point in your life you have to be an ...

Finally a relaxing, free, do whatever you want kind of day. It felt good to sleep in a bit, all the way until 8! Since we've been staying at San Domenico for around a week, we all felt it was time to actually go take a peek. It is a truly beautiful church. Yay for natural light and windows! All of the other churches did have one relic or another from this saint and that, but besides St. Dominic this church had numerous ...

Giro Turistico

... day. And that is exactly what we did.
The first place we headed off to was National Picture Gallery of Bologna in the middle of the university district. It was full of works from the 13th to the 18th century by artists who were in some way related to the city. As Jodi put it "lots a Jesus." 99% were religious paintings. That all seemed to all depict:

  • Saints
  • Annuciations
  • Crucifixi ons
  • Madonna and ...

Giorno Due

Mmm breakfast. I could really get into this coffee, croissant, and hard boiled egg thing. I love the crabby couple that manages the breakfast too! I have no idea what they are saying, but it has that thirty years of marriage nagging quality to it you know?
After stuffing our faces and forming a plan, a troupe of us headed over to buy bus passes. We made Amanda go first. Once the Tabaccaio lady figured out what we wanted it was no ...

    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.
