Bologna’s streets are perfect for wandering aimlessly, filled with miles of covered porticos that shade you from the hot sun, and shield you from the rain storms — two adversaries that we’ve spent our entire trip combating. Eric took the boys to visit the Ferrari and Lamborghini Museums that are nearby (which I don’t have any photos of – though maybe Eric will add some eventually), but I spent nearly the entire time in Bologna just roaming around the narrow streets and eating the delicious food. I can never get enough pasta and Prosseco. We did climb up the Asinelli Tower for a chance to see all the rusty oranges, yellows, and browns of the streets from above. I didn’t do a great job of taking photos while in Bologna (I have almost none of the kids – though I did take a few while wandering and climbing the tower).
We also snuck in a quick trip to Milan for the day before saying goodbye to Eric (who had to leave early to head to work, much to our chagrin), and heading off to Sicily. Sawyer and I got to take a quick glimpse of The Last Supper while there, which he learned about with a friend (Hi Berk!).
We’re headed out of Paris on the train toward Cahors (southern France). We covered quite a bit of ground during our stay. The best part was catching up with my niece Cadence! She happened to be passing through Paris at the same time, on a school planned trip. I’ll post photos sometime soon. For now, check out the place we stayed at!
