Thanks for your answer to 're train stations Florence & Venice'. Thank you, That's sounds simple. Should I book the tickets in advance?

    Depends on when you'll be traveling. There's usually no problem getting on a train, but if you purchase in advance online you'll be able to take advantage of discounted fares. The farther in advance you purchase, the deeper the discount. In some cases, you'll find great fares that will also allow changes to the booking should you need to.

Buon giorno, Eugene! How are things in beautiful Firenze today? :O)

    Ciao Kate! Things in beautiful Florence are absolutely stunningly... beautiful today! The heat wave finally broke and we're enjoying a breezy, balmy holiday today. In fact, today is "Ferragosto" - the holiday every red-blooded italian takes extremely seriously. Yes, the day is fundamentally a religious holiday (Assumption of Mary Day), but what's most important for the locals is that it's the one day when everyone closes up EVERYTHING and heads to the beach. Which is fantastic for the rest of us because we have this town to ourselves!!! Of course, Ferragosto will somehow manage to spread itself over the space of a few days. After all, tomorrow *is* Friday, followed by the weekend... so why rush back? ;o)

    And how are things in your neck of the woods?

    I think you sent that heat wave my direction: been beastly this week! The Minnesota State Fair begins on Thursday - our official "end of summer" event - and school buses will be trundling the streets again in another week or so. Summer here in the North Country is all too short. :O(
