Ravenna to Bologna

We got up late by design – we’re both tired and today is a rest day. We cleaned up and checked out of the hotel. After a quick lunch we took a taxi to the train station and caught a train to Bologna. We ate a really good, vegetarian lunch at Botega Conti-De Francesco. We […]

From Siena to Bologna

We woke slowly today. We got breakfast and got out – we decided to go to the Pinacoteca de Siena, the painting gallery in Siena. No pictures and no catalog, so there’s not much for me to do but say that the art is very interesting. Sienese art is very gothic. We drove to Bologna […]
