... our group of five was able to see nearly every church inside and out for free, all the while praying to the God who gave us this incredible opportunity. It's definitely a win-win situation. After some more wandering, crossing the river, looking in shops, and getting lost, we decide to try and find our bed and breakfast. Yet another hour of walking went by and we find the place with "Novella Italy" listed on the door. We spent several minutes trying to figure out ...
... including a replica of Michelangelo's David which replaces the original because it was starting to deteriorate in that location. It's here that I see the work that stands out for me from the whole day: a magnificent sculpture of The Rape of the Sabine Women by Giambologna. I'm not quite sure what it is about it that makes it stand out from its world-class peers in this treasury of sculptural art, but I'm particularly awed by the way that the sculptor has captured the impression ...
... an eggplant parmesan take out order from the deli...and OMIGOD...it was the smoothest most flavorful eggplant parm I ever tasted. Like the city itself, textures, flavors, colors, fabrics, sound and smells are soft and whispering, yet penetrating to the core.Every time you take a taste or.a bite pf something, you have to pause, and really experience it. No inhaling, rushing or harshness here. I'm sold on 2 1/2 hour mid day breaks. When I get home, ...
... So after class today I spent some time at the technology center. Things brings me too why I have been silent for abk ut a week.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alba Palace Florence
Nice little hotel
Good, central location, within walking distance from all of Florence's main sights. The rooms are small, but quiet and clean. The dining room staff could use a little friendliness assistance, but were okay. The desk staff was nice.
My husband and I stayed at the Alba in October, 2003. It was a short walk from the Florence Rail Station (but you may need to ask directions!) We found it conveniently located to the central area of the city and also the tour buses left from near the rail station. The room we occupied was not as small as eg in Paris and it contained a small fridge. There were restaurants closeby.
