It's been a better-than-average visit thus far with a visit to DaVinci's Vitruvian Man (wow!) and a short hike through the Alpine foothills above Vicenza that, at least for us, were "alive with the sound of music."
We are contemplating ringing in the new year at the Piazza dei Signori with this local band that recently took home the "Best Italian Act" at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Of course, if the forecast holds true, we'll be watching The Sound of Music for the fourth time in a week (hey... it's good stuff) and watching snippets of the party here. I'm truly happy either way.
