Weather's not looking good for next week.

Rain every day in the forecast. Sigh. Oh, well. We'll just snuggle under an umbrella, I suppose. ;)

Actually, one of my best memories was from when we were in France last year. We were in Amboise, and it was pouring and so dead that the cafes all closed. We stopped at this amazing little restaurant--the only one open, it seemed!--and had a wonderful dinner. We were the only ones in the place, and the two lovely ladies who served us kept bringing us little bits of cheese and little plates of olives to sample, and they fussed and fretted over us all evening long. It was wonderful! So now perhaps I'll welcome the rain in Florence.

Hi, you will certainly have an excellent visit to Florence even with rain. We were soaked for a couple of days of our visit last month. And one of them was the day we went on a tour to Siena and San Gimignano. Yet we had fun seeing the sights and stopping to eat or enjoy a cafe.

Do you have any other suggestions for Florence in the rain ?

Hey, it's November after all..

If it rains, schedule churches and museums visits and get busy in academic level, in depth shopping.

Hopefully, it won't rain too much during our visit as well....I don't know if it's something I welcome or dread...

I can only say - hey, it's Italian rain which is much different than the Chicago, New York or American rain we get. It smells better, tastes better, just more pleasing all around.

A Phd in chocolates, espresso, or gelati wouldn't be so bad either.

Have a good trip Katie.
