Trip - Day 15

Monday, June 13th

After our breakfast at Villa Zane, we bid farewell to our host, Giacomo, and head back to Klagenfurt.

On our way we make an excursion to the town Udine. This is another town that dates back ages with wonderful streets to stroll, filled with interesting architecture. We first stop at the piazza San Giacomo for a coffee. Then Brigitte leads us to more photogenic spots, including the Piazza della Libertà. We had hoped to go inside the church Santa Maria della Purità but we've just missed the open hours. After more photogrpahs we head over to lunch in a small cafe, the Ostarie Al Vecio Stallo, once a stable near a vineyard, where grapes still grow on the cafe walls.

Well fed, we next visit a modern mall where Brigitte buys some perfumes, and then we're back in the Yaris and on our way to her flat in Klagenfurt.

Once settled in at Klagenfurt, we have a dinner - where I have one of those forgotten dinners of my mother, taflespitz (boiled beef). A stroll throught town, and a good night's rest.
