My bologna has a first name...

We made it to Bologna and decided it was time for a break. After exploring the city for a few hours...

...and seeing Dante's two towers...not to be confused with Tolkien's. There are no orcs or hobbit here:

...we decided to quit sightseeing for a few hours and watch tv in the hotel. We also added LOTS of older blogs including Assisi, Florence, and Chris's favorite movie so far.

Tonight, we are heading out for dinner and a movie in the Piazza. Tomorrow, we don't think we will have internet, but we will be touristing it up in Bologna, and on Thursday, we will be traveling to Milan to Basel and finally to Mannheim. Three countries in one day!

I can't believe we are almost done in Italy. Then it's Germany, Switzerland, Paris, and home!


  1. Haha a town named bologna. I've got you beat though, on the way to Schroon Lake, Nancy and I spotted a town named Coxsackie. Coxsackie. Probably the highlight of the trip.

  2. Is she kidding..who could believe a town called Coxsackie!!! not Alice

  3. once again, i believe that the outdoor movie thing was also shown in Chasing Liberty, with Mandy Moore.

    i hate myself for pointing this out, but i can't help it.

    i love me those crappy girly movies. haha

  4. We actually knew that thanks to ABC family... :-)

  5. I hope that you have sampled the famous bolognese sauce while in Bologna. I'm just catching up with the blog since moving was chaotic but I love the posts and videos. Ciao!!

  6. Hi Alice and Chris,
    I have been enjoying this blog :) It took me a while to figure out how to join and I went with google but honestly, I still am a novice. I agree women glisten and Sussex County tourists are all at the lakes so the roads are empty! Alice I bow to you touching the guard rail!
