    ... the baptistery, museum and then lined up (it was an hours wait) for the Panorama dal facciatone. This was amazing and we could overlook the city from above the rooftops. We then were faced with the challenge of finding our way back to the Grom - the gelato shop we saw on our tour, and the Italian Grocer we wanted to visit to try pannaforte. This ended up a bit more difficult than anticipated as we found that just one wrong turn can send you way away from where you think you want to ...

    Apologies for bombarding you with blog notifications, but it's been so long since I had a reliable Wi-Fi connection I thought I'd best take advantage of it while I can.

    ... pan fried rabbit with olives and roasted potatoes. Dolci was a torte. She paired each course with a different wine from this area. We learned new recipes and techniques that we, (mostly Tom) will be able to make again when we return home.

    ... us that it’s called crostina. I also have a wonderful risotto dish with a side of funghi. Lynda has her fagioli (white beans) that we find out are cannellini beans. When we first sit down, we decide to only drink water since this was our first day out and we have no idea how long our return trip will be. That idea quickly fades as we order a half carafe house pinot grigio to go with lunch (it could have been a full carafe). ...
