I'm waiting for her response to my e-mail because we might just have to take separate trips because this is my last trip overseas ever, probably, and I want to make the best of it and not have to deal with an incompatible travel partner - again.

Yes the Amalfi coast, I forgot about that, it is scary as hell on a bus, but beautiful. Positano is the easternmost point on earth I have ever been.

Also in Sienna there is a Basilica to the intestines of St. Catherine of Sienna, but her noseless head is in another one.

   Oh my goodness.  The poor woman.  I am sure glad I shall never be
considered a historical artifact.  Particularly a religious one.. What a
horrible ending.  Demeaning and horrid.

Oh, I only stayed in a hostel once, and it was with 5 other Brokies when I went to Oxford.  It was fun.  LOL

Where's her nose?  ???

My regular bartender told me that he thinks three days is enough for Florence. The art is wonderful, but there's nothing to do at night.

Of course, his idea of "nothing to do at night" may be influenced by his being an unusually handsome young gay guy. ...  :-\

As I recall, everyone in Florence naps in the afternoon, works a few hours, and then goes to dinner around 8 to 10 pm, followed by long walks and nightlife ending in the wee hours. There's lots of good music in Florence during the evening, and you can get a gelato any time of the night!
May 2019 be better for us all.
