Backpacking in Bologna - Day 2

Hey guys! I'm sorry I couldn't post earlier, I was veery busy (and now I'm sick (T-T)). But at least I have more things to write about in the future!
I also have my exams coming soon this June, so don't leave me, it'll not be long. I promise (^o^)

So, this is the second day of the short trip I had with my dad in Bologna, Italy!
You can read about the first day here.

The view I had from my room.

Time to take a picture, the housekeeper had brought breakfast for two.

Coffee, tea, jam, Nutella, croissants, hazelnut yoghurt, strawberry yoghurt, peer juice. Yum.

Visited the Santo Stefano Basilica in this pretty small square.

Being the guide-translator as always.

I took billions pictures inside the Basilica (which actually is a complex of seven religious edifices) but I don't want to make it boring for non-believers.

Believe me or not but it was already time to eat. We had bio pasta for the first time, bruschette offered as a starter.

The Two Towers of Bologna. Sadly you can't see well on my picture, but the tallest is the Asinelli Tower, and the smallest, the Garisenda Tower, is leaning.
It's really impressive IRL but I wasn't able to capture a good picture (>O<).

If you remember my old post about Venice, I already talked about GROM. This is probably my favourite Italian ice cream chain!

We had May's flavour, which was dedicated to the Little Prince, and almond/nougat as usual

Back on the Piazza Maggiore to eat them, before visiting the Palazzo d'Accursio.

These stairs used by horses pulling diligences. This way wealthy people with heavy luggages don't need to walk.

The view on the Piazza Maggiore from up there.


For dinner, we believed the Use It again and went to the Osteria al 15 .

At first we were alone and felt out of place, but people quickly started queuing to eat there.
At the same time, asians were taking pictures with their food. I was not alone, lol.

We really ate too much this time. We even had a bruschetta with beans offered as a starter. I was so full I could barely breath anymore.

That's all for today. The next day we go home already!
I'm sorry if the post was a bit messy, but I can't think proprely.
