Below you find pics I took with my camera in Montegrotto. My hotel was in Tulli – which is just outside of Montegrotto. The owner family of my hotel is rather big and the ‚grandfather‘ (or father) of current owners was a painter (deceased last november). So there are a lot of his paintings in the hotel but my parents told me that he had a house in Tulli where he painted. Must be one of those in my pics.
I went into Montegrotto several times. For supermarket, market or just to explore the area. I could see that a lot of shops were finally closed. So they didn’t make it during Covid-years. 🙁 But in addition – not as many people as before are doing mud-cures nowadays. Close to Montegrotto is Abano Terme and same situation there. Either people don’t care or can’t afford it anymore. My health insurance did pay part of my stay but I had to pay most of it myself. Which is OK because I could choose what I wanted to do. But for the hotel I stayed at it was a good decision to add the dive-pool Y-40 to kind of diversify. I walked around Tulli the first days and later to Montegrotto when it wasn’t raining. Over the first weekend we had a thunderstorm that started late afternoon and the next day it was still going on until 11 in the morning. Unbelievable. Never seen a thunderstorm that took so long. I tried to take a pic of flashes but caught only one. 😀
