Lazy day in Parma

We felt we needed an easy day today, for reasons explained later, and had an fairly late breakfast before strolling out to see the remaining churches and artworks in Parma. Incidentally, the trattoria we had intended to return to last night was closed, so we tried another - the Trattoria Tribunale - which turned out to be not only more pleasant, but also cheaper!

Anyway, this morning we went to the church of St John the Baptist, ...

... a slog....Michael did suggest we could have just tobogganed down on our cases! The bus to Pesaro is one of those tri-axle jobs (probably because of the several hairpins going up to Urbino) and very comfortable, for those who enjoy buses of course!

We made the station in good time for a quick coffee, and then found the train absolutely packed with folks returning home after their Christmas hols. Luckily we had reserved seats, ...
