Our tour guide, Silvia


We came back to Italy from the country of San Marino. Pesaro is a small town on the Adriatic Sea, down the mountain from San Marino.

It is known as "the city of music" because of Gioacchino Rossini, the famous composer born in Pesaro in 1792. He wrote 39 operas as well as some sacred music, songs, chamber music and piano pieces.

And, in the pictures, you will see the rainbow that always comes after the storm to lift your spirits!! And it certainly did it for us!!!

Our tour guide, Silvia, told us that the local people of Pesaro aren't used to having tourists in their town yet. It's just opening up to tourists. So you will see in the photos that two local ladies stopped Silvia to ask what was going on with this large group of people she was leading around. She said they ask if she was a terrorist (I think they meant tourist!) Anyway, they had a lively conversation!
