Thursday, Day 3 Palmabella's Italy: Part 2: Dozza

After our wine tasting, we returned to our bus for the short drive to the charming little town of Dozza (between Bologna and Imola). The surrounding countryside is beautiful. Here is Marcello, of Bluone, stopping the bus driver to show us views.

This small commune of 6, 400 residents draws visitors, because of it's art. The narrow cobblestone streets begin at the Sforza's Castle (now a regional wine enoteca), and each building and house has a mural painted on it. Every two years, there is the "festival of the painted wall" where artists compete for a spot, and the varied art work changes.

Our dinner was on the beautiful terrace of Ristorante Cane' in Dozza.

I did NOT take photos of everyone's food, but Cane' is known for their tortellini and grilled meats, so here are a few shots. The last is a bowl of vanilla gelato with Balsamico!

Marcello is wearing a short sleeved shirt!! **gasp**

I loved visiting Dozza with he and Colleenk a few years ago...we ate at the same restaurant although too cold for us to dine outside on the terrace. The view from there is (of course) gorgeous! So happy you took your group there with the always entertaining Marcello.

Jo:
