a.k.a Madame Mouse, has just been offered an opportunity to study there!!!
She's studying at the Prato, which means she'll be living close by.
Which means.. that I will be going to visit!!!!
Any more excited and I'd make a mess!!!!
But, I digress...
What I need is some cheap, authentic, student-worthy suggestions of local fare.. markets, hole-in-the-wall, mamma and pappa (hell, even Nonna and Nonno) places she can go...
Things to do and see and EAT!!!!
I'm going to print out your responses and put them together in a "How to eat in Florence" book for her.
(and just quietly, I am not as altruistic as I appear.. I want her to check it all out before I get ther, so I won't waste time and can immediately get chow-worthy on my arrival!!)
Thanks in advance.
