This time I opened the door and walked three flights up stairs to meet the man behind the voice. He was an elderly gentleman. He beckoned me to come inside but I told him that I had to tell my friends. He said, "Zey are comink. Zey must uza this."
The best restaurant we've been to so far is a hole in the wall around the corner from our room. Last night I had the Penne Deco which was incredible and twice as much as I needed (I ate it all anyway) and today I had the Linguine alla finghi e porcine (linguini with mushrooms and pork). Fantastic.
We were not allowed to use our cameras in the Academia so I can't show any photos. However, Michelangelo's David (of David and Goliath fame) is easily accessible on the internet.)
Did you know that Michelangelo created David out of a block of rejected marble? Anyway, after all these years I'm glad to finally get to see it.
As we were passing through the Piazza della Signoria a huge procession was taking place.
Men all dressed up in medieval costume with horns and drums. Very solemn. I wondered what was going on. The procession lasted a long time. Who was coming? The pope? A cardinal? A bishop?
