George’s Postcard Note: We discovered another great Italian city – Bologna. It took a railroad adventure to get there from our house in Barga, but well worth the effort. What a beautiful city filled with wonderful buildings, which meet narrow streets upon mandated arcades. Yes, these arcades were required by city government in the middle ages! The entire old city is walkable within the shaded and protected arches of these arcades. We took a break from our day trip to sit down with an ice cream and watch bustling crowds of students and tourists walk by. I happened to glance up and saw the famous Torre degli Asinelli towering above the street and its arcades.
