Flag of Italy  , Trentino-Alto Adige,
Wednesday, May 21, 2008

It's raining all right.  Left Cesenartico this morning and have stopped in Ravenna, thought I better do the Museum/Basilica 'thing'.  Still getting used to driving here especially in heavy rain and when finding a carpark by following the GPS it tells me I am 'here' just after I was 'there' - following it far too literally!

So I stumbled into the carpark I wanted and went to the Basiclia Di San Vitale.  In the same complex is the Mausoleodi Galla Placidia and the Museo Nazionale, after I bought a ticket to the Museo I found out you need numerous tickets or a special combo ticket to go everywhere.  The Basiclia was consecrated in 547 and has a famous collection of mosaics in green, blue and gold: Very impressive.  Must admit thought city history is not doing it for me so it is off for more nature as I will now head towards Lake Garda which is on the edge of the Trentino -Alto Adige region (the Dolomites).

........ 300k later of driving in crap weather and I am so glad I did.  Now in Riva Del Garda and it is simply beautiful.  Just checked into a hotel (www.giardinoverdi.com) that has parking and I will be staying here for the next 3 nights.  With the bike there is just too much packing and moving of stuff in and out of the car to do it every day if not needed and from here it is only a short drive to Arabba for the start of the next ride on Saturday.
