    Once a grand fort with its impressive red brick walls surrounded by canals, is now little more than an overgrown park. Free to enter, the place is now overrun with cats...and like most cat colonies around the world, this one has its own eccentric cat lady who shuffles in to feed them. Aside from cats, there is a dilapidated children's playground, and views over the canals to the Piazza della Repubblica. Banners and adverts around town tell of an outdoor summer music festival set in the grounds of the Fortezza Nuova, but such is the stupidity of cruising, we had to be back on board by 7pm so missed out on this.
