We started our Thursday morning with a metro ride to Porta Genova to check out the canals in the Navigli area.
Our table neighbours were football fans from Southampton who came here for a match that evening. All clad in their team's t-shirts or shawls. We had seen some of them earlier and would meet more all through the day. They must have been a big delegation!
Old paintings on the walls
An elephant on the wall!
Somebody took "My home is my castle" very literally.
By then we had been walking for about seven hours, so we took the metro back to the hotel. One last time we met some Southamton fans who were apparently traveling to the stadium and warming up their singing!
At the hotel we relaxed until it was dinner time - which in Italy is never before 7 PM!
Since - as mentioned above - I had eaten pastries and gelato all day long, I really needed some meat and vegetables for balance. But I couldn't resist the delicious desserts afterwards. Food is really the only thing we spent money on during this trip. And fortunately it was very affordable!
