I took a few more pictures through the bus window.
We stopped at the small town of Assisi. Saint Francis made this place famous. There is a huge three story church there that we walked through but, of course, photos were not allowed. We even had to have our shoulders and knees covered to go in.
I love this gate!
And this window.
And this door.
And the mailbox on this door.
Here's a close up of it.
We strolled the winding cobble-stoned alleys and stopped in a few shops but, what I remember best is the hazelnut gelato I had. it was so cool and nutty and creamy.
We didn't get to see much of Rome because our hotel was on the outskirts. We did take a bus ride into the city for our Farewell Dinner but we didn't go by anything very famous so I only took a few pictures from the bus. And they didn't even turn out that great.
We had a delicious dinner with a DJ and a bit of dancing, wine, more wine, and a taste of a wonderful grappa. We'd had grappa before but it was a clear one and tasted like varnish. Our tour director wanted us to taste a really good one so she bought it herself and gave us all an after-dinner shot. It was warm and lovely....just like our whole Tuscan vacation!
