My days are getting a little confused. I wanted to write this last night but just collapsed instead. Today is Thursday. I write that for my own benefit – coming here you loose a day of reference and then they all start running together in an orgy of food and new sights. On Tuesday we did a walking tour of Old Verona. Went up in the tower (Torre Dei Lamberti). Camillo took the elevator – I took the stairs, all 368. I went down by elevator though, the challenge is going up and my point had been made.
We ate lunch in La Taverna Di Via Stella (Osteria con cucina tipica) Via Stella, 5/c – 37121 Verona- This restaurant gets a 9 – only because I am holding out with my ‘10’ rating. For the two of us the lunch was 8 Euro more than yesterday’s rated‘6’, but we had a bottle of -- see below – an antipasti, shared grilled lamb chops with a veggie plate, and a salami di chocolate….all top notch for 46 Euro. This lunch in Rio would have been R$200.00 and the veggies would not have included radichio (see above) which I have never seen in Brazil good or otherwise. I’ll write about yesterday in a separate post so we don’t get mixed up.
