Manoli's Shades of Marble - Ten days in Italy

Florence is a city that needs at least a week only to visit every landmark. The city of Michelangelo's David, of the Galleria Uffizi, of the Golden Gates of the Heaven, and the heavenly Duomo, also keeps in its Santa Croce the tombs of Michelangelo, Gallileo, Machiaveli, Rossini, Dante, and the list is long. The most beautiful sight is the lights of the night on Ponte Vecchio, where the world's finest jewelry is made.


One of the many trips during that stay in Rome was to Pisa, where the leaning tower lies (leans actually). A team of Australians, Daniele and I jumped on the train at 5am, and discovered the treasure of panetone, which should be the official food of any train rider. Other then that huge chocolate-filled cake, my day's share was a packet of crackers, which i enjoyed one by one in the company of a little cat, while glancing at the tower for about three hours in the Piazza dei Miracoli. Unforgettable Pisa!


The city of the south, inventor of the pizza.
