Saturday was a rainy day, so we really appreciated the fact that most of Bologna’s old town sidewalks are covered. You can walk around town and, for the most part, stay quite dry.
We decided to visit a couple more museums – always a good choice for rainy days. First of the list was the Archeological Museum of Bologna that was closed when we tried yesterday. The museum is located inside a 15th century historic building and includes Egyptian, Roman, Greek and Etruscan exhibits.
Next, we went to the Palazzo Fava to see the frescoes but found the place to be closed. Instead, we went next door to the Medieval Museum.
We also popped into the the St. Peter’s Cathedral for a quick look and a couple of photos.
So far, it looks like Sunday is going to be a relaxing day as we hang about the hotel. We leave Bologna tomorrow and head to Parma for a couple of days.
