|Buried underneath the city are a huge
series of catacmbs that have been used and expanded since prehistoric times.
One of the more interesting 'tours' that we took was through a reconstruction
of history decorating the dark walls of the cave labyrinth. A great stop
was at a fountain that had wine (yes really!!) pouring out of it.
Because we were travelling during Easter week, we stopped in to catch the service at St. Stephen's basilica. While we didn't get a chance to see his mummified right hand, we were astounded by the sheer numbers of worshippers and tourists filling the huge church.
Alea and Breck weren't too impressed. As happened quite often during the trip, Barbie and the Bionicle came out and began planning a wedding or something...
|Of course, when the going gets too rough, there are options. We ate like kings there (although Susan did give in and took the kids to McDonalds twicw (2 times in 4 days!!!), Grandma did some serious reading in our pension, and we even spent an afternoon at the thermal baths!
