Dozza (2011 trip)

Thursday, June 16th:
On Thursday, I had another Italian lesson with Andrea in the morning. After my lesson, he made me a delicious pasta with pesto and a caprese salad for lunch.

Then, we drove to medieval village of Dozza! Dozza is famous for the paintings on the walls of the buildings up and down the streets of the village.

After we walked though the village, I visited the Castle Rocca Sforzesca.

Inside the castle:

Views from the top of the Torre Maggiore:

I am not sure this counts as much of a tower climb. but the views were very cool!. I do remember how vicious the birds were. They kept flying right towards me and freaked me out a bit.

On our way back to Bologna, we stopped in the little town of Castel San Pietro Terme for a gelato. I only took a few photos as my hands were busy holding my delicious gelato.

I may have to go back to Castel San Pietro Terme one day to climb this tower.

Another wonderful day spent with Andrea learning Italian & visiting more of Italy.

Next up – Friday in Bologna (last Italian lesson)
