Re: The expat community in Florence, Italy

Hi Lorrie,
I know there are since I've heard my colleagues discuss them, but it's been many years since I've looked for a student apartment or shared room. Most of these rentals are managed by agencies, even the ones posted on facebook groups, like this big one ( https://www.facebook.com/gr.... The other resource is case.it which is a house purchase and rental website.

In case you didn't see it, this article on budget to live in florence might be helpful to you too: http://www.arttrav.com/expa...

best regards
Alexandra




Re: The expat community in Florence, Italy

Hi! I'm moving to Florence in September to attend the Angel Academy of Art. I'm planning to be in Florence for 2 years (with several trips back to my home in Big Sur, California). I'm hoping to find a room with private bath (if possible) within a 10 or 15 minute walking distance of the school (which is located on Via Nardo di Cione 10, 50136 Firenze). Is there a good site or FB page you can suggest that puts people together for finding shared accommodations? Thank you!

Wow, that's amazing. Go, Alberti family, bringing business after 700 years! What I was unable to find on their website was if the place is open regularly when there isn't a show on, do you know?

How lovely Alexandra! I visited this church a couple of years ago and loved those frescoes. Also it was one of the reasons Nico's company chose Ponte a Ema to build one of their sites because the founder fell in love with it too! I'll have to check this out.

Such beauty and attention to detail. Definitely worth seeing! Thanks for letting us know about this exhibit.

Absolutely! All the more considering that they keep adding new rooms (I've written about 2 new sections in the past 2 weeks). It just keeps getting bigger!

Very timely article for me! I will be visiting Florence this summer. Love your comment about the Uffizi gallery. I think a tour is a good idea considering how unending this museum is!




Re: Uffizi Caravaggio and the 17th century rooms

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 10:32:34 -0000

Yeah, it's a good match!




Re: Unseen Masterpieces: The Uffizi’s Contini Bonacossi Rooms

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 10:32:21 -0000

I'm so glad I could help. Booking Uffizi tickets online in advance is essential, especially in high season! Have a great trip!




Re: Uffizi Caravaggio and the 17th century rooms

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 06:46:28 -0000

Spectacular! I'm sure Caravaggio would have loved the red colored walls displaying his paintings.




Re: Unseen Masterpieces: The Uffizi’s Contini Bonacossi Rooms

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 06:44:34 -0000

What a timely article, as I am planning to return to Florence this summer! And Caravaggio is one of my favorite painters, so I will read on to your previous article as well. You've inspired me to get my tickets online before I travel, as these are not to be missed!




Re: Take your kid to a museum: tips on approaching art with children

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 06:26:47 -0000

That's a really good question. My guess is probably not, though I'm not an expert on children of any sort. But my guess is that kids these days might take a photo of an artwork that they like, and that is how they would remember it. Whereas any conscious activity like note taking would only derive from if they are provided with an activity book that asks them to write something down. Make sense to you??




Re: Take your kid to a museum: tips on approaching art with children

I wonder if kids visiting an art museum or gallery together with their classmates and teacher, or simply by themselves together with their parents, do ever have to take notes on what they saw. Let’s say from the point of view of the elements of art. I’m curious about how kids read an artwork. What note taking techniques do kids use in a gallery, for example ?

It's worth a visit! ciao!

Wow, that red is absolutely perfect! Can't wait to see the rooms in person. Ciao, Cristina




Re: On not drinking in Italy

Hi Tami, congratulations! I've responded to you by (long) email. Ciao!




Re: On not drinking in Italy

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 19:11:40 -0000

I appreciate this post so much! I'm a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for nearly 20 years. My husband and I are heading to Italy for the first time, for our 15th anniversary, and I was really nervous about this issue. My perception is that wine, and almost only wine, is served everywhere in Italy. Was worried to not partake would be considered rude (or foolish). Love your tip to just say "sono astemia!" THANK YOU!

2 other questions I'd love your input on:
* Will I be able to find diet Coke, in small restaurants? We will be in Rome - Florence - Venice.
* I've read about hopping around early evenings to places that serve aperitivo with purchase of a drink. Does that have to be an alcoholic drink, or would this still be an option for us?

Really appreciate any insight!

Tami

Re: How to Travel the Cinque Terre in Winter Too

Sat, 27 Jan 2018 02:06:02 -0000

Hi Alex,
I'm not really sure - weather has been quite warm this winter so far, so Italians might start traveling early. Easter falls on April 1... My guess is it'll be welcoming and less crowded than usual if you go before easter - I'd avoid easter weekend itself if you can!
Enjoy the big trip! Alexandra




Re: How to Travel the Cinque Terre in Winter Too

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 18:47:46 -0000

Hi, and thanks for the great article! My girlfriend and I are planning a trip that seems right on the cusp of Winter and Summer - the first week of April, BEFORE Easter (we're spending Eastern in Greece). Will the Cinque Terre be alive and welcoming, maybe even perfectly "off" the tourist season, or will we be on our owns? Thank you!
