We left the hotel around 10 this morning and joined a "free" walking tour. The tour was for 2.5 hours and included much of the old town / new town section of the city. Saw many interesting buildings and enjoyed the commentary that the guide gave. It was well worth the tip we gave the guide and a good way to get oriented with the city. Lots of narrow winding streets and easy to get lost if you don't have a good map.
The tour finished around 1:30, so we found a great outdoor spot for lunch, a beer and lots of people watching! There are a lot of beer taverns in this city. After lunch we walked over the Charles bridge but decided to leave the castle until tomorrow
We decided to go for a nice dinner on the river with a great view of the Charles Bridge and the Royal Palace. Headed out for dinner around 7:30 and got a great table right at the water edge. We are becoming quite european with our dining.....eat much later here than we normally do at home. The restaurant was actually a large boat and was in the water...great view and lots of boats passing by....very romantic!!! We had a delicious meal, including beer before dinner and wine with dinner for only $50 CAD.
After dinner took a slow leisurely walk back to the hotel and settled in for the evening. Jeff is happy ...today we have seen a red Ferrari, a yellow Lamborghini and a white Morgan... Some pretty impressive cars.
