We had an 8.30 start to give us time travel to Padua for the morning. I’m afraid I’m drawn to shops unless something very out of the ordinary intrigues me. I would have liked to see Galileo’s observatory in the university but that’s a trip for another time as I’ve discovered it’s open at 9pm in the summer, so you can see the stars. The university tour would also have been nice but their website said tours were on the afternoons on on Fridays, although someone else in our group went on one😃. You’ve got to love Italy 🇮🇹.
Our afternoon was spent on the Brenta canal looking at all the beautiful summer villas that belonged to rich Venetians. If you have a million or so you could snap up a ruined one up and restore it, there are a lot just falling to bits and it’s rather sad to see.
I ended the day with dinner in an old brothel. It doesn’t seem to have changed much.
