Castelfranco

These battlemented brick walls were thrown around the town by the Trevisans in 1199 to protect it against the Paduans.

The walls are remarkably well preserved.

We called in today on our short journey to Verona, where we are now happily installed on the camp site that enjoys fine views of the city.*

Lunch was taken in the shade of the equally impressive walls of Cittadella, inconveniently closed to tourists on Tuesdays.

All that after breakfast outside a café near Hotel Scala in Treviso, which itself was good value, with an excellent pizzeria across the road and a supermarket next door.

A trip to Decathlon completed the day's activities. Now Sue has a comfy armchair in which to enjoy the camping element of this trip.

*We habitually use Rough Guides on these trips. We are pretty disgusted with the fact that the guide to the Italian Lakes fails to mention the camp site amongst its 21 pages on Verona, despite having room to extol the virtues of an assortment of pricey hotels. 'Rough Guide' - I think not!
