Faenza

Tuesday, June 14th:
The plan for Tuesday was to visit Faenza and then Brisighella after an Italian lesson in the morning. During my lesson, Andrea had me call La Baita Osteria in Faenza to make a reservation for lunch. Calling on the phone is one of my challenges when speaking Italian. I think it’s because I rely somewhat on my hands and visual cues when speaking to others. After a few practice role play situations, I successfully made our reservation.

Andrea drove us first to Faenza.

Faenza is known for ceramics. Because we were planning to visit, Brisighella, we didn’t have time to visit the Museo delle Ceramiche di Faenza, but I did notice these cool ceramic door signs:

Lunch at La Baita was delicious! I can’t remember the names of the dishes now. I had the rice dish…

and Andrea had the pasta dish…

Next up… Brisighella!

  1. Hi Girasoli, it’s so cool that you’re blogging about your 20111 trip. I wish I can one day take a class in Italy or Spain to learn another language. Your blog looks great. I love the header photo. Your food photos makes me crave for Italy. I’ve not heard of this town before. Thanks so much for sharing and for putting it on my radar.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
