      Jeannie, so you’re another who collects postcards – rather than send them….;-) I would love to be able to tell you the violinist was playing something sweet and romantic. I honestly couldn’t hear him about the din in Florence than day – tourists everywhere!!! I’m sure it was something just a little sad. Yet he looked so smart in his grey…Maybe he was sponsored by Gucci across the road? You never know.

      Ciao Elisa!!! I’m finally settling back – till next time. Italy was wonderful. Wonderfully warm too…. You deserve a lovely break in Italia after all your hard work. Let yourself be pampered by la famiglia. Have a lovely time. xxx

      I know you love Florence too Debra! Si, I visited the Palazzo Davanzati I think it was two winters ago. It was a lovely surprise. Empty but for me so I was lucky. Florence has some wonderful second tier museums that hardly anyone seems to know about, don’t you think?

        I am often the only one in the Palazzo Davanzati, I love it, particularly the parrot room. I take all my friends there. I think I have been 20 times and I never get tired of it. Why queue for the busy ones when you can just walk right in to some of the lesser known ones?

    Those lollipop-colored dresses in the window are too too sweet! And I like all the bikes. It seems to me that Italians are doing more bike riding in cities these days–or at least I saw a lot of cycling in the back streets of Rome.

      I agree Jann! On all fronts. I have been window shopping those dresses since Marabella was a baby. The shop is in that busy busy strip, just as you come off Ponte Vecchio. And bikes are definitely taking over. All over! I saw the share bike racks in Rome but the coolest are the old, slightly battered ones casually lent up against a wall. Ready for the likes of us to snap!😉
