Asti, Italy

We made several trips into the town of Asti. Asti is a good-sized city of 75,000 that dates from the time of the Roman Empire.

There are several public squares and a very large cathedral.

Maria directed us to an excellent pizzeria downtown.

An excellent shopping street was also located downtown. Note the split hours for shopping. Like most places in Italy, stores and tourist attractions tend to be closed from about 12:30 until 4:00.

After that afternoon break, the stores re-open and the crowds come back.
