Where I stayed
The next day is pretty much taken up with strolling along the River and seeing the Uffizi museum. We also visited the touristy street market, which sells marbled paper, inscribed leather notebooks, leather wallets, fake bags and leather jackets. So much leather in this city! I was nearly tempted to buy a leather jacket, but decided against it. The Duomo is amazing...one of the most amazing structures I have seen thus far.
We found the most amazing place for lunch, Mario's, which is an old restaurant that only opens at lunchtime, but my god their food is amazing!!!
The next night for dinner we go out to a fancy restaurant, Acquacotta, and I have squid ink risotto (which is black, but doesn't taste strange at all). The rest of the time we have been eating gelati, and have been trying about 6 flavours a day *blush*. We are having a race to see how many flavours we can try...hehe!
