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, ...
... bored, happy, grizzly, slobbery, all one thing in common....loved and shown off like some spoilt child.
If one sits or stands in a specific place anywhere in the city, one can photograph a dog every 5 seconds!!! Tried and timed!
In a cafe they are lunching.... They help go shopping for make-up.... They go clothes shopping in Zara.... ...
... on artists with importance to Parma, as well as having a small archaeological section and a huge section on drawings and architectural drawings of importance to the area. Most of the paintings in this little gallery were by bodies not on Joys lists, although some of them have now been added to those lists. 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 ...
... hills of Urbino, and the narrow alleys of Bologna and Siena, as Parma is very flat, and most of the streets are quite wide, though there a quite a few narrow side streets. It seems a fairly quiet town too, from what we saw on a Saturday night, but maybe we were just in the wrong places. Tomorrow is gallery day, first the National Gallery, and then the Stuard Collection of 270 (!!) paintings. You'llno doubt hear all about them from Joy ...
