AW, Grand Circle didn't come through with the thunder storm!! No rain!! Just a little overcast. So a great day!

Urbino is a walled city in central Italy. It's known for the turreted, 15th century Ducal Palace (Duke's Palace). Inside the palace, the National Gallery of Art features paintings by Titian and Raphael. Raphael was born in Urbino.

Urbino is also a university town.

It is a World Heritage Site notable for a remarkable historical legacy of independent Renaissance culture.

The town is nestled on high sloping hillside and retains much of its picturesque medieval aspect. It and the countryside are beautiful.

We then took the bus to lunch, of course. Can't miss eating. Eating is part of the Italian culture. And it's sooooo good!!

We went to a farm house out in the countryside. Grand Circle is famous for finding out of the way places to visit and to eat. This farm is also a Bed and Breakfast so it could handle our group of 20. Oh my. Cold appetizer. Hot appetizer. Salad. Pasta. Meat. Dessert. Red Wine. White Wine. Limoncello. Our saying is "More food please". They're always feeding us.

Bus ride to the boat=nap.

More food tonight=Italian buffet!
