It was overcast and cool today. It rained overnight, but by the time we were up and about it was dry, but still cool. So we decided it was a museum day … because that is what we do. (To be completely honest, we probably would have gone to a museum even if it had been a beautiful day, but the weather helped.)
And of course, on our way to the museum, we still got to appreciate the architecture of this beautiful city.
We had an interesting experience at dinner tonight. We decided on the restaurant over drinks at the end of the day. It was too late to try to make a reservation, so we decided to just go with the flow. The place was packed, which is both a good sign (must be popular) and a bad sign (will we be able to get a table?). Fortunately they were able to squeeze us in. It’s becoming clear that tipping is not expected here, but it is appreciated. So when we settled up, to show my appreciation for finding a table for us (and for the fabulous meal), I added a modest tip. The moment we had finished paying, the server asked “Limoncello, or Grappa?”. As I said, tips are not expected, but they are definitely appreciated. The Grappa was on the house, and delicious.
This is what all train stations should look like…
