|For context, here's a view of the lovely town.|
|A full-sized vehicle on Line C.|
|A Line B bus coming up a hill...|
|...and passing by.|
|And here's the bus at the terminus of Line A. To be honest, it can probably be assumed that it's the exact same vehicle every time.|
|Well, I suppose I have to give a shoutout to Jay, striking a pose in the back.|
|Looking up front.|
|The rear window was quite dirty, so...yeah.|
|Unsurprisingly, I didn't capture them well at all.|
Eventually, we made a hairpin turn onto Via Renzo Rosati in order to climb further up the mountain. This led to civilization again with (slightly) modern houses. After a quick loop around a parking lot to serve a boarding school, we turned onto Via Eremo della Carceri, which went steeply uphill and through a gate.
|Of course, when I say slightly modern, I do mean slightly.|
We merged onto Viale Giovanni XXIII, now passing some legitimately more modern houses. Well, they were still made of beige bricks, but they were certainly newer constructions. The street curved sharply downhill and we turned onto Via della Cooperazione, going by a few businesses and some more houses.
|Speaking of which...|
We continued down that road for a while, passing residences in little clusters and traversing lots of hills. Eventually, we turned onto Via Ada Negri, which curved up and around to a residential area. At one point, the driver saw a friend and they talked in Italian for a bit before we kept going. Our driver, by the way, was awesome, albeit scary. I mean, he took those sharp turns quickly. Plus, there was one point when someone ahead of us was going slowly as we accelerated up a hill, so he literally put his hands behind his head as we headed up. That was...interesting.
|Some blurry houses.|
Our trips was one of the ones to serve a so-called "stadium" (more like a field with bleachers, but this is the mountains, after all), so we headed up the narrow Via Giovannino Guareschi. Coming close to the stadium, we then turned onto Via Giovanni Renzi, passing a fancy-looking hotel. Merging onto Via S. Benedetto, we were going by houses once more.
|How's about another view?|
The street curved around onto Via della Madonna dell'Olivo, and we soon passed a gas station and a few other businesses. After going around a rotary, we reached a stop just outside Assisi's city wall, and laid over for a little bit. From there, we entered the old city once more, and there were lots of medieval buildings again. We passed a basilica and lots of shops until we arrived at the Plaza del Comune, this time on the other side. The bus would continue as Line B to keep on driving through the mountains, but we got off right in the plaza, ending an absolutely amazing bus ride.
