Napoleon Slept Here

We had tired of Tuscany (oh i know, poor us) and we decided to pop over to the Adriatic. With very little help from our beleagured gps (she sent us 200 km out of the way) we landed well after dark at a former Napoleon fort that has been converted to a hotel--Hotel Fortino. It doesn't get much cooler than sleeping where Napoleon did. Vince loved it, it was too old (ancient) for Adele. 
There wasn't a tourist in site, nor a town for that matter. We spent 2 blissful days hanging out with the Italians (see pic below) and having a grand old time. Truly some of the best food in all of Italy--restaurants on the ocean serving that days catch and promoting what is known as the "slow food movement", which by the way was started in this region!
