Where I stayed
As we walked to Piazza della Repubblica, we heard music. A concert was being held in the piazza! Cam recognized the music as being that of Mozart's. We stayed for a bit to listen and watch the young teens and their instructor. A great start to another great day!
We walked uphill to the churches of San Francesco, San Nicolo and Santa Margherita
After a lot of exploring, we grabbed some gelato and headed back to our hotel. We grabbed the laptop and went to the internet point, a few buildings down. Except for Rome, this has been the only internet point we've seen during our trip. After a lot of downloading, we went back to Hotel San Michele and grabbed the remainders of our lunch. We walked up to the main piazza and sat on the steps of Palazzo Communale to have our dinner and people watch. It was a Monday evening and since many of the shops were closed, it was a quiet night in the piazza... a big contrast to the night before.
We went back to the hotel and watched the Italian version of Deal or No Deal... much more lively than the American version. We caught a glimpse of CNN and saw that Toronto made the headlines with its transit union strike.
