Amanda - I've never been, but a firend has. Here are

some liner notes about Florence...I'll post his Venice overview too!

I suggest climbing to the top of the Duomo

and also visiting the Uffizi. All the places to

eat were exceptional but our favorite was a cafe on thenorth end of the

main square - don't remember the name but it was wonderful. Also one must

go stand on the point in the square (well marked) where Girolamo

Savonarola was burned at the stake for teaching reform of the church. He

slightly preceded Luther and therefore was

tolerated less - especially as he was more political.

If you’re visiting Florence,

a stop in Siena is recommended too! There is a wonderful restaurant

there that I can’t recall since it has been almost twoyears, but I can

tell you it was the first street to the left of the tower in the main square

when facingtower. Just head down the street about 40 yards and it is a

little place on the right with the bar near the entrance.

Exceptional! If you talk to the owner you find out that he is an expert

at creating gluten-free pastas
