Heading out into the warm evening to find something to eat. It is not that difficult, the biggest problem is to choose from all the lovely restaurants. Finally, we settled for a enoteca, 'Bodega Vino' that Martin knew from before. Lovely old house, with a lot of atmosphere, good food and wine. Martin took a Truffle Risotto and I had some grated mozzarella with truffles. We tried some of the local Soave and Valpolicella wine to go with it. Not bad at all! We ended the evening with a small stroll through the narrow streets, before climbing the stairs to our 'Hermitage'.

I find that squares are always wonderful in Italy, and these two as well. Surrounding by old houses with clock towers, cobblestones and statues. In Piazza dei Signori, Dante is standing in the middle of the square, looking out over the passers by. He spent some of his exiled years here.
