Gelato for Lunch

Our lunch was Giani’s gelato. How do you choose?

A decision was reached!

Then we walked and we walked, stopping at a grocery store, where I bought some food items to take home. I also found some black flats, and some socks for the cool evenings here. Bologna is a beautiful city with wonderful architecture.

We dropped off our bags at the hotel, and took a coffee break at Café Déjà Vu.

I also stopped at the Farmacia with products from Farcacia di Santa Maria Novella for some room scent and lemon hand crème.

After a nap, I went out for a little more shopping. I bought a fabulous winter-white cardigan at Luisa Spagnoli.

We had a glass of wine and chunks of parmigiano at Bar Macambo, then walked to meet Fiona and Steve at Scalinatella for dinner. We had tortelloni, then a filetto con balsimico for me and vitello with formaggio and vino for Brad.


Nowhere are the tortelloni or tortellini as perfect as in Bologna!

After dinner, we stopped for a coffee and grappa, then watched a street performer in the piazza before heading home to bed.
