Summer of 96 - Montagnana

Montagana was one of the most delightful surprises of the Grand Tour. Especially since it wasn't even on our itinerary. We detoured into this lovely town because we couldn't find any accomodation in Venice or Padova.

This medieval city in Northern italy is so incredibly well-preserved - it's like stepping back in time. The Youth Hostel was located in one of the castle towers and I was lucky enough to spend the night in one of the cells that was used to store cannonballs - supercool!!

Watching the sun rise over the turrets the next morning was a religious experience.

I am certain my prayers were heard that day.
