November 10, 2011

On Tuesday we went to a villa in country surrounding Florence to see a garden with a tour guide. After we walked around Florence again and after lunch we went to the Uffizi gallery. In the gallery we saw many famous and important paintings. We saw Botochelli's Birth of Venus and Springtime. We also saw Raffael and Leonardo paintings and one painting by Michalangelo. For lunch I had pasta in spicy sauce to start, chicken scallop for the main course, and espresso to finish.

Yesterday we went to Frisole which is a small town just outside of Florence. It was originally an Etruscan town and then a Roman town. While there we went to an old curch and monestary. After we went to a Roman amphatheter and bath. Then we went to a 1913 villa that is owned by Duke University. For lunch we had a traditional Tuscan apatizer that included toasted bread one liverwurst on it, one with sausage spread on it, and one bruschetta. The appatizer also included fried mozzerella, two types of salami and proschutto.

Today we went to two large villas in Florance Villa Barbarini and Boboli gardens at the Pitti Palace. The Boboli garden was very large and both had good views of the area. Today for lunch I had ravioli in rose sauce, gelatto, and cappuchino.

Tomorrow we go to the town of Lucca wich is abour an hour away.
