Yes…the view from atop the tower is amazing, but you must not forget that there are steps! I was so captivated be the beauty that I did not notice two steps. The laws of gravity apply the same in Italy as they do in America! The result….a visit to the local hospital where I discovered that I have a small crack in the side on f my right ankle. After three X-rays and a visit from the orthopedic specialist, I was fitted with a soft cast and instructed not to bike for at least a week. Walking is to be kept to a minimum. Here’s a plus…no bill! Apparently Italy does not charge for healthcare. We only had to pay for a prescription and a brace that I will use after Saturday.
