Day 5: Ravenna (5)

image

Although the sky was grey, the rain had mostly let up by the time we reached the Piazza del Popolo in downtown Ravenna.

To our delight, the piazza had been given over to a touring chocolate festival, Art  & Ciocc, with stalls offering candies, hot chocolate, pastries, and other goodies.

The question of where to eat lunch had changed from "Which restaurant?" to "Which chocolatier?"

Should we demonstrate our patriotism by devouring dolci Americani, or take  a culinary cue from the queue of schoolchildren at ChocoPassion?


image

We reached a split decision: Cheryl ordered hot chocolate, Durant had chocolate-filled cannoli, and we bought some chocolate for the trip home.

All too soon, it was time to rejoin our fellow passengers at a corner of the Piazza del Popolo and board our coach for the drive back to Chioggia and River Countess.
