Ciao tutti! Since our history professor gave us our final exam early, we got Friday tacked onto our Easter weekend for a 4 day break, perfect for a bit of train travel through Tuscany and Liguria. The weekend was definitely packed, but I got most of the other places that I really wanted to see off of my list, so it worked out well! On Friday, a …

I finally convinced them to email and then Ken found an online ...
