Marie and I flew from Perth on 05 July 2016 courtesy of Emirates EK425 to Dubai. After a good nights sleep we boarded EK099 for Rome’s Fumicino airport.
We didn’t stay in Rome on this particular trip but you can Click Rome to view previous snaps of the eternal city.
From Palermo we flew north to Bologna to visit some old friends in Rimini. In fact they live in a wonderful villa in the hills overlooking Rimini. We had a great day visiting the town of San Leo with its Fortress of San Leo, a one time residence of the pope I believe. San Leo is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rimini in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 135 km southeast of Bologna
That completed our Italian visit and it was on to France.
Ryan Air got us safely to Bordeaux where we took a regional SNCF service to Bayonne from where the charming Francine drove us to her apartment in the nearby town of Anglet. Francine introduced us to the neighboring towns of Biarritz and Bayonne. We also took a day trip into the nearby Spanish town of San Sebastian.
