We walked for like 15 minutes with our backpacks on through the crowded shopping area when we spotted a hotel. We were so sick of carrying our huge bags we decided their single room would work for us. After all the twin bed was a bit wider than usual. Are you having a flashback to college? Yeah we did too.
We really had no idea what the sites to see in the city were. So I made a quick list from our Lonely Planet book and with help from the concierge we were on our way.
Here are a few of the highlights (no I don't remember any of the names and am entirely too lazy to look them up.)
You're drooling aren't you? It's ok to admit it. Just make sure you don't get it on your keyboard. We don't want a short circuit.
At this point I was tired. We headed to the hotel for a quick nap and then off to dinner. We really picked a good hotel, because the oldest, so Lonely Planet said, restaurant in Bologna was just around the corner-Trattoria de la Rosso.
I'm sure you're sick of hearing about the great food, but this was seriously the best lasagna I've ever had. It was really nothing like the American Italian kind. It was so delicious.
I was so sad when it was gone. But not to worry, I had some delicious tortellini with bolognese sauce. Also mouthwatering and nothing like it's American counterpart. We really needed to work off some of the food, so of course we went for a beer and then for a stroll around.
As you will see, the Italians have a big problem with leaning towers.
