The walls surrounding the city are really impressive. They are consisted of four gates and twenty-four towers. It is truly a sight to behold. Inside the walls there is a castle San Zeno, that is now used for tourism. We headed inside and found the “center” of the city. There’s their cathedral, not really grandiose compared to Duomo of Milan. We walked inside the church and found amazing architectures inside. Aside from the church, we passed by the old buildings and museums. I’m not a travel/history expert, so i won’t dare go into details here.
It was almost 12noon and we obviously are starving, so we don’t have any idea where to eat, so we just get inside that big restaurant across the cathedral. OK, i knew the saying “when you’re at the center, everything is not cheap”. Never mind, “we’re tourists for a day.” Hahaha!
After lunch, we headed to the Spring Fair, and we enjoyed looking around what the people are selling: tractors, plants, foods, native products, pots, etc. My friend/photographer waved at me, upon seeing us coming. She took us to her exhibit booth, and meet (again) her mom, dad and her younger sister. I got excited seeing my daughter’s poster there, along with the little photos hanged inside the booth. I have never been a proud mom, especially when people give nice compliments about my little one.
After chit-chats, we continued our visit to finish the entire walls. It’s not that so big after all. It will only take you an hour to two hours (with sitting/resting/wondering).
It was a tiring, but a happy day for me and my family. I don’t know if i will go back to Montagnana again, but if you got the chance to visit the city, i tell you, it’s all worth it!
