... their favorite local snack "The Bones of the Dead."

We stayed at another privately owned villa here, and although not as fancy as the villa in Lucca, we were struck by the fact that so many Italian businesses and hotels are family owned and operated. We've received better service at these hotels than the larger chains, and the prices are considerably cheaper. Upon a return visit I'd definitely stay in the smaller towns and visit Florence via day trips. ...

... It is not in the Ufizzi but there is a copy outside. The detail in these statues is like those in The Louvre and the Musee de Orsay. Michelangelo, for one, studied corpses to understand the underlying bones and muscles.

They are so good we can even eat them for breakfast! We headed to a town called Volterra about 30 miles away. Rick Steves says that this is his favorite hill town of Tuscany. Our fuel tank said something in Italian that I goggled that said we were in desperate need ...

First to Florence. The tour guide took us into the city which was a little overcast. Florence seems smaller than Rome in how crowded you feel with all of the buildings around you and so many things to see in a much smaller space.
