We sit down to our authentic Tuscan meal which starts with an antipasto of parma ham, proscciuto, salami, crustini, bruschetta sun-dried tomatoes and olives (of course). Next is a barley soup, then pasta with tomato sauce and then the main course, Florentine steak and wild boar (which was actually very good).

Maybe I'll do that someday, but not today. I'd need to do some research ahead of time to figure out which museums I'd want to visit... that'll give me a good excuse to come back here. But today, I'm just going to do a hobo tour: enjoy everything that is free in this city.
