Just thought I'd put my little weekend planning up for comments and ideas. Basically the things not in brackets are mandatory and I will pretty much HAVE to be on those, but I do have a couple of free weekends up and was looking for ideas! Feel free to comment on the bracketed things or anything in general, things I can sneak away from the group to do in the other cities that we're visiting. If anyone has ideas for cool daytrips from Florence I would love your ideas. No idea if my classes/exams and workload will actually allow me to be gallivanting around as much as this, but no harm hoping.
I'm also interested in checking out Gran Paradiso NP as well as the Temples of Damanhur in Valchuisella, maybe Elba, Milan...too many places to go!! Grazi!
