Except that it appears to have been closed
So on to the Basilica
Except for one minor issue
Less than happy camper Wife contemplating
And more steps
214 of them to be exact
But once we were there it was a very beautiful church and we had it all to ourselves
Even the stone tiles were nice
And there were great views of the area around the city
It was Noon time just as we finished and the bells were chiming
But of course if you go UP the steps that means you have to go DOWN the steps
But if you are a stalwart Wife you are rewarded in the end with a nice Aperol Spritzer
Our next stop was the Botanical Gardens but first we had lunch which was much better than yesterday as we once again were making use of the trusty TripAdvisor App. Lunch was an interesting cafe inside a home decorating store - that was different.
I had a cream of Brussels sprouts soup and a salad while Wife had a filet of sea bream
The new greenhouses in the Botanical Garden are another example of the modern art existing with the traditional in Graz
After all the climbing and walking we stopped at the Sacher Cafe to experience the 'Original Sacher Torte'
