By the time we left Dante's Tomb, we needed to sit down, so we went into a Mercato Coperto (covered market) and found a table. I ordered coffee, and I got a hot chocolate for Nancy. Her hot chocolate turned out to be very hot and very thick. I had one on a return visit, and it's the most intense chocolate experience that I can remember. Below is a view of the place and the chocolate.
That evening we went to Passarelli, a restaurant recommended by our hotel host. The food was really good (we splurged) and we also met the charming Lucretzia and her father, an engineer from Bergamo who makes machine tools. While Nancy conversed in broken Italian with Niccolo, I played toss-the-doll with Lucretzia, who was puzzled that an adult could be so stupid as not to understand her!
