I like Florence; and thanks to the Immaculate Franciscans at Ognissanti (20 minutes' walk from my hotel) I can attend EF Mass daily.

Assisi was marvelous and moving beyond words: beholding the frescoes of the life of St Francis in the upper basilica, I cried. "Not all tears are a sadness."

However, regarding more down-to-earth matters, the cobblestones of Italy have destroyed another pair of shoes, as happens each time I come here. I suppose one can buy shoes in Florence...
