A Sunday Morning Walk and San Stefano

We had lots of slow Sunday morning time in the café this morning. I had my usual THREE café lattes (doubles) and a wonderful pastry.

We decided to go for a long walk on this clear, but chilly morning. Bologna is a wonderful city to walk. Almost every street has beautiful covered arcades, and marble “sidewalks”. The porticos and buildings are lovely, and there are churches every couple of blocks.

We began right by our cafe with a visit to the church of San Giovanni Battista Dei Celestini.

We headed up Via Farini, then cut over to walk to one of my favorite neighborhoods and the gorgeous Chiesa di San Stefano. We spent a good amount of time visiting the church and grounds.

After our exploration, we were hungry!

When I studied in Bologna, I lived in the Santo Stefano neighborhood and loved it! Piazza Santo Stefano is one of my favorite places in Bologna; I think it just gorgeous.
