We were struck at how many shops were closed and the huge amount of 70% SALE signs in the windows. As we have got further into our time in Italy this has become a common theme
We walked through the beautiful central square and found a nice wee cafe that was opened and happened to sell (Tom's favourite...) Aperol Spritz! They served our drinks with some delicious olives and a basket of crisps which we enjoyed very much! For dinner we stopped at a local restaurant that had been recommended to us. Just after we sat down (under a large umbrella) it started to pour with rain. It was quite fun sitting eating with the rain beating down around us. I had the most delicious pasta with pears, walnuts and blue cheese - delicious. Tom had a bolognese, as one must in Bologna! On the way home we got an icecream - stratiacella and limone. It was the best icecream I have ever eaten in my life - no exaggeration!
The next day we took ourselves off on a walking tour of the city visitng all of the architectural highlights. The Cathedral was beautiful and one of our other favourite stops was the University buildings. We discovered that this University is actually the oldest in the Western hemisphere which was pretty cool and surprising. After spending time in the centre of the city we bused to the station to head off on the next leg of our journey: Florence, or 'Firenze' if you are Italian!
Lots of Love,
