Today’s field trip took us to Assissi, where we visited the church San Francesco. Afterward, we had a little bit of free time to walk around before lunch. There were plenty of shops, but most of them sold a lot of the same things, so there wasn’t much variety. There were definitely three gelato/pastry shops that had the exact same display in the window. I wish I had my camera to capture the drool-worthy treats. Thanks to Kate for these pictures! Seriously, you couldn’t not walk in after seeing the rows of desserts. We had an arranged lunch at a restaurant called La Rocca. It’s always nice when you don’t have to pay for lunch! Since it was Ash Wednesday, there were a lot more vegetarians than usual! The first course was pasta with marinara, then we got fried eggs, potato wedges, cheese, and salad, and fruit for dessert, Santa Chiara style. After lunch, we went back to the church to sketch for a little bit, then walked around some, and it was time to go back! We didn’t get back until 7pm, seriously LONG day when it seemed like we didn’t see many things. Yawn.
