Today we went to a market recomended by Sabine in the morning. Got some nice things and beautiful picnic lunch. Then we toured the Uffizi and got a little nicely lost on the way to dinner. Robyn got her hair cut at a local salon. We had an amazing dinner at a place recomended by Robyn's Mom's friend Chiaki in Piazza del Carmine.

Hello, from a fellow travelblogger! I'm going to be traveling to Italy in a month or two and was wondering if you could give me some advice on getting around. I want to see...well, everything...and thought that a train pass would be easiest. The only one I've seen offers just three days within two months - I'll be in Italy for a week and want to travel more than that! I'm also a student. Any advice? Email: travel_goddess@hotmail.co.uk

getting around Italy
Hello, We had a great time in Italy. But if you're only going to Italy I've read that buying a Eurail Pass isn't worth the money. It's more worth it if you're going on long train rides between countries. The best advice I can possibly give you is to get the Rick Steve's book on Italy. He's the best at helping American's get aroud practically in Europe. I thought he was just for old people when I was younger becaue my grandparents followed his books and show, but when it came time for doing my own research on Europe, I found his guides the most comprehensive and helpful. And a guide book is really worth the money. As he puts it, a guidebook is a $30 investment for a $3000 trip. So my adivce to you is to take the train around, you'll see the countryside, but not to worry about getting a Eurail pass if you're just staying in Italy.
