... Trevor had some tips on the route as hes has been here since the weekend.
After that, Rach and I headed into town for the opening ceremony, trying to keep the eyes open by then. It was held in the Piazza Duomo which is quite spectacular and a cloud shrouded moon made for some good pics.
Had some pasta for dinner and headed back to the Hotel after that, try to catch up on some sleep...
