We were unable to actually visit the Church of Sant’Antonio di Padova, as there was a wedding there, and the guests were all arriving.
Once the guests had gone inside, the groom was left out, waiting for his bride.
Not being invited to the wedding, I decided to sightsee instead! I quickly joined the crowd of locals, as they took advantage of the nice afternoon, and the lovely setting.
Everything that I had read turned out to be true. Boccadasse was a magical little enclave!
Nothing seemed to matter here, except enjoying the day!
One is never far from a café/bar in Italia!
I fell madly in love, with this little part of the city!
Once you walked to the top of the town of Boccadasse, the coastline spread out before your eyes, and it was really beautiful!
We headed back along Corso Italia, for part of the way, and then decided to try a slightly different route back to the center.
We soon came to Piazza della Vittoria, and the Arco dei Caduti.
Back in the center, there was still time for a little passeggiata before dinner, which was at a tiny trattoria, close to the apartment.
Of course, we had cocktails back at Piazza delle Erbe, this time at Gradisca Café!
Next up: We travel to Pisa!
