Fribourg Rest Day- 8/6
Today we decided to actually rest and check out the town of Fribourg. It was almost as much work as riding since we were down in a bowl and had to climb out to get to the main part of the city. Lots of history, pretty church, and of course a nice Italian pizza lunch.
The climb to the main part of town
The fountain at the "Hotel DeVille"- city hall
The "funiculaire" a giant size tram/escalator to the main part of town
Maria was in charge of wine for dinner back at our hotel so we met with the chef and picked out some great ones, and of course got to taste them (one of the small benefits). This small boutique hotel had some of the best food on the trip.
An evening meal at the Au Sauvage- very cool private dining room
