My boyfriend and I are on our way to Tuscany for vacation. As it is quite a long drive from Vienna we had an overnight stop in Cittadella yesterday. Cittadella is a small town situated in the province of Padua.

IMG_3986While we were still in Austria we stopped at a service station in Carinthia. We refueled ourselves with some shakes and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Wörthersee, before it was time to hit the road again.

Just a few minutes from our hotel was the city centre.

IMG_3997What is remarkable about Cittadella is that the city centre is enclosed by a high wall, dating back from medieval times.

We went inside and walked around for a bit, storming into a supermarket to get some nice Italian bread and cheese.

Cittadella is a nice town to spend a few hours. It has cute little shops (lots of shoes!) and nice bars. We settled into a bar overlooking the cathedral and ordered Aperol Spritz while watching the sunset.

Unfortunately it won’t be much of a vacation for us, as we have to write on our dissertations. Nevertheless I’m excited to enjoy some beach time in Tuscany.
