We have encountered a lot of history and beauty during our week in Italy, and our day in Vicenza was no exception. But today I chose to focus on the beauty.
No museums for me.
So I hit the streets of this lovely, upscale village and shopped.
It’s the place to do it.
The only thing that hampered my trip was the shop merchants’ habit of closing down for 2-3 hours in the afternoon. I found myself most interested in items that were behind locked doors, but with no signs to indicate when the owner would return…I left with the money still in my pocket.
I’ll show him. I know how to buy things on the Internet.
And as I walked the flagged boulevard toward the train station, I left with warm memories…
…and tired, aching feet.
