    ... is a Florentine delicacy made from the 4th stomach of the cow (surprise, no one in the group tried it), but breakfast wine kind of speaks for itself. Another of their specialties is the bollito, a delicious sandwich made of boiled veal served with a spicy sauce to enhance the flavor (everyone tried it, and loved it).

    ... a lovely little restaurant just off the Duomo square for dinner… spaghetti carbonara, pork medallions, crème caramel and 2 glasses of wine each for about $50. The rain had let up for our long hike back to the campground, and the wet streets of this beautiful town were magical.
