Today we met Maria while we were walking around the gorgeous city of Bassano del Grappa in Veneto. We were talking about not knowing that much about this incredible town. Maria overheard us and speaking little to no English she led us on an almost 2 hour tour of her city.
We learned about one of St. Frances of Assisi's first churches, Napoleon's palace while he occupied Veneto, A huge Rhino as a gift to Emperor Maximillan and soooooo much more. Talk about a major perk...I was totally geeking out and my lovely group just let me ~ *
