Our morning wanders took us back to the Piazza della Vittoria which had become our favourite hangout. Our extended lunch, coffee and gelato break was much needed as the day heated up. We sought refuge from the late afternoon sun in the apartment with a snooze. This could easily become a bad habit!
Our day ended with a return to our piazza for dinner before heading back to the apartment to pack. Final thoughts on Pavia - It has certainly been a wonderful experience. Whilst there were tourists around, they were few and far between. It was nice to see young children, families, university students and other residents going about their daily lives. Equally nice was to have the time to slow down and not have to hit tourist attractions. On the move tomorrow and on to tourist haven Venice!
