There is a peita in the same room as Ghirlandaio's Last Supper -- I read that the room is the refectory of the hostel of the San Marco convent. I have recollection of it being on the wall to my right as I faced the Ghirlandaio. It looks like glazed ceramic,(a little chipped), white with blue background, in an archway of fruit garland. Does anyone know what it is and by whom?
Traveling from Paris to Florence with a family of 5. Me, my wife and 3 children. What is the best and most economic way to book an overnight train from Paris to Florence. It's been a few years since the wife and i have visited Europe, but remember there are better ways to book travel by train than using the online sites available. Look forward to any and all tips.
Thanks in advance!
Hi there! Just wondering what is the best mode of transport to get from Cortona to Venice? We were thinking train but I am having trouble finding suitable timetable information. I should be looking Cortona to Florence and then Florence to Venice? We were thinking of maybe having a look in Bologna on the way? Thanks!
This is my boyfriend and my first trip to Italy (both 30yr) We are staying in Florence for 4 nights from the 4th August.
We plan to take the bus to both Pisa & Lucca during our time in Florence.
After Florence we would like to plan a week touring southern Tuscany - Sienna, San Gimigano, Arezzo, Montepulcinao, Montalcino, Chianti and Val d'orca and any other places you might recommend - any feedback would be great.
We ideally would like to stay in farmhouses (private room with ensuite) where we can enjoy farm activities, family meals and culture. Our budget is 100Euro p/night and we are flexible if this trip will take longer than a week.
Should we hire a car? If so where from once we depart Florence? Should we choose a base for our accomodation? Or is there a better option? After Tuscany we plan to drive to LaSpezia where we will head to Cinque Terre.
Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.. Lisa
