So on Sunday when i took a short day trip (1/2hr) from Florence to one of the charming medieval towns to the north, I counted 4 stops.
What a surprise to find there was a Chocolate festival int eh main square......yummm.
|One of the many counter of chocolate....|
But a bigger treat was to meet Marta Benini. Marta was working at the tourist office on Sunday morning and even though she was scheduled to close for the day she continued to chat with me about the project I am researching on this trip: Italian Christmas Traditions.
I am sure there are many surprises down the old lanes of this town..
My only problem was I had planned to go to Pistoia! There was an extra stop in Prato (2 train stations). Never mind, once i found the train station I continued on my quest for Pistoia.
