Up the Boot (4): Verona, and Back Home



We departed from Assisi after breakfast and drove on through Tuscany, across the Appennine and into the Po plain. A sightseeing stop was planned in Verona. We had a walking tour in the historical centre and finally went to the top of Torre dei Lamberti for a fantastic view of the city.


Piazza dei Signori

Our last night in Italy was spent in a remote hotel in the Dolomites. Certainly a busy place during summer and winter season. Now, in October, it was opened for the tour group in order to make some money. One single girl was in charge of everything, and I felt sorry for her. Breakfast almost caused a revolution. They had calculated one single roll per person. Now imagine a bunch of German pensioners who had constantly been complaining about the Italian breakfast anyway... Everyone grabbed at least two rolls, expecting additional supply to appear from the kitchen but there was none, so for half the group there was nothing left.
I don't remember how the problem was solved. But I am sure that no one died of starvation.

The way back home lead over Brenner pass, through Austria and into Bavaria. Lunch was spent at a brewery restaurant - 'the' brewery restaurant - on Tegernsee lake in pleasant October sunshine. In the evening we were back in Marburg.

Haha, yes, I can absolutely imagine the revolt about the breakfast :-))

Well, I was in it. Polite as I am (ha ha), I was among that second, breadless half of the group. The young lady told me into the face that she thought two rolls per head were "exaggerated". She was certainly at the right address with that remark.
The driver informed us later he would take care that his agency would not use this hotel any more in the future. Bad luck for them...
