|The simply stunning Caffe dell'Arte|
It started to rain almost as soon as we'd finished breakfast, so we set off for our walk armed with one of the Palazzo Avino's distinctive blue umbrellas, although the rain had stopped as we stepped into Via San Giovanni del Toro. As we approached Viale Richard Wagner we heard classical music being played, and the first rumbles of thunder - nature's music competing with man's. Beyond the Piazza Duomo we discovered a marching band was playing from the shelter of the tunnel along Via Giovanni Boccaccio, so we stopped to listen & watch for a while before they set off for the piazza & the few of us about at 10 am on a Sunday morning followed them to where they stopped directly in front of the Duomo. When they finished, we all applauded them before they dispersed and hubby & I set off to hunt for a ceramic bowl for me to bring home as a memento of this particular weekend.
