    • around the corner from Ghirlandaio's Last Supper at San Marco convent.

      Florence Jan 13, 2015 at 6:43 PM

      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?

    • First time travelling in Tuscany

      Tuscany Dec 30, 2014 at 7:58 PM

      Hello,
      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
