. A third of Americans continued their exploration of Europe along the sea, some hurried to the airport to go home, and we took a car for two days and went to San Marino.
This is a story about how we found ourselves at a wedding, carnival, and a scene where a movie was being filmed.
The road, at first, was pretty exciting (then it turned into the road, which can be characterized with only one word - "amazing". During the cruise, we lost track of the days of the week, so when we saw a holiday in the first village, we knew it was Saturday.
From the old to the young - you should learn from an early age!
It was such a pleasure to travel with the wind in your face along the Italian roads!
We decided to dine in Perugia. We left our car at the free parking lot (because of the day) and went to "Centro Storico".
The crowd was suspiciously making noise on the steps of the Palace behind the fountain.
And then I realized: we were at a Saturday gathering of people fond of everything connected with the Middle Ages! We had just watched the "Role Models" movie on one of the free evenings in the cruise, and we thought that such people could be found only in the USA, but no, in Europe, they were also gathered all around.
were silently looking at the current events from the walls of the Palace.
Impressed by what we just saw, we decided that it was time to eat. Cafes and restaurants on the streets of the city welcomed us with open arms.
Musical accompaniment is guaranteed.
I ordered my favorite, Gnocchi verdi. It not only tastes divine, but it is also brilliantly beautiful!
At the exit to the city, we got into an unexpected jam: a movie scene was being shot and the passage was closed. We were asked not to make noise, and we were breathlessly watching how the movie was being created for about ten minutes. Then the filmmaker said "Cut!" and we were allowed to continue our journey. I managed to take a photo of the main actor during his preparation for the next scene.
We went to San Marino. Here we are high in the mountains. These are the Apennines.
This was our car. In the mountains, an automatic transmission is better for the driver's peace of mind...
Road signs showed the "winding road" and "the next zigzag" signs at every turn, and daring bikers outpaced us with roaring engines. Wreaths flashed before our eyes on the side of the road here and there. It seems that the local youth consider the race on the mountain spiral a weekend attraction (everything looks harmless in the photos because you can only see the land and sky through the lens at key points). I think, we were a great hindrance for them.
Knowing that San Marino is located on a high mountain, we excitedly peered over the horizon.
After passing the next turn in the road, we gasped in unison: here it is!
