As there really wasn't much to see in the city, we felt it would be a good time to relax and chill for a while so we did very little for most of the day. Thankfully the hotel had free internet so we used to it's fullest to update travelbuddy. Amazing how long it takes to write the diary and then upload all the photos. We also booked the next few destinations - Riomaggiore in Cinque Terre, Pisa and Florence.
We did venture out around lunchtime to get our train tickets for the next day and to have a walk through the park. We were a bit hungry so grabbed a couple of slices of pizza from a small pizzeria and sat in the park eating it. Bec was suffering from hayfever and the drowsy effects of the hayfever tablet so we went back to the hotel for the afternoon with a plan to try and do what the locals do and have a siesta and then head out later for a drink and a meal.
It was only 8pm but the town seemed really quiet especially compared to the night before, but we pressed on and found a nice little bar near the leaning towers of Bologna, sat and enjoyed a drink and some nice bar snacks. We then walked through the Piazza del Nettuno and checked out the Neptune fountain under lights. By this stage we'd lost track of time and realised it was 10pm and that we should probably have some dinner. For some reason half of the places we'd walked past the night before were closed tonight so we found a quaint little place just off the main road and sat down for some nice pasta and a small bottle of the local wine which was very nice.
