I loved the location of this hotel, in a beautiful park and so close to the town's piazzas. Wifi was usually of good strength in our room but we sometimes had to go to the lobby for the best reception. The service was great with very personable staff!

... Then it was back to the churches, though some were closing for the afternoon by now, and a walk down the road to see the fountain Michael had discovered on his walkabout on the first evening.

But, although being able to get close to the paintings here too, nothing seen here came quite as close in wow factor as that lovely little drawing ..... La Scapiliara.
... at night, so you really have to watch for them. Dogs are a different issue. About one person in three walking the streets of Parma has a dog with them, and these are highly strung pedigree breeds too. Many are the very small breeds, and in this cold weather most are covered with great little jackets. Joy photographed many of them, and plans to do a theme blog on the dogs of Parma. Hmm, have to wait and see if she is barking up the wrong tree with that ...
After a world class panini it was off towards Modena and then south towards Pisa. Easy!
A couple of hours of afternoon driving I was thinking, then some vino by the beach in the evening. It was still sunny and warm so I drove on the small roads and enjoyed the scenery.
I had a bit of a drive around in Modena trying to find the turn off towards Pavulo Nel Frignano and the route towards the Mediterranean coast. I hadn't been to the Italian ...
