    Stefano;
    Tanks a lot. I' l visit the store for shore. I’m living in a very small village in Norway and haven’t seen a photo shop with analogue equipment sins I visited Roma last year.

    I’ m ordering all my stuff by Internet and would like to see and touch before I by.

    I have also visited our website and like your photos a lot, especially those from the Tuscany landscape.

    I have been told that Firenze is an rather expensive city, do I have to expect that it will be so here too?

    Firenze is rather expensive city, but I think as all the turistic cities, it's quite easy to save money, my advice is avoid turistic restaurant, look well at the menu' outside the restaurant or pizzeria,(you could eat well with 15-20 euros but also bad with 100 euros) the other sites(museum, gallery etc) if I remember well, it isn't so expensive.
    Thanks a lot about my photos on my website.
    When will you come here?
    Maybe we can meet and go to take pictures on the Landscape....

    Ciao

    Stefano

    If you eat meat, don't forget to have a "bistecca fiorentina"; the "house wine" will also be excellent.

    Buon viaggio.

    I'd recommend the Vernaccia di San Gimignano. A delightful white wine from just outside the city. Many restaurants will carry it...

    You have to try Bistecca alla Fiorentina, absolutelly, in Firenze there a very good restaurant "Perseo" where you can eat a fantastic Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
    You shouldn't miss also another two old and poor plate.
    One is Trippa alla Fiorentina, it's a part on bowel, I don't know translaction I think Tripe. To taste perfectelly put over trippa a bit of grated parmigiano cheese.
    Second it's a take away, always and old a poor recipe, Panino con lampredotto, it's also another part of bowel, you can easily find in every part of Firenze.

    This wine is fantastic, you have also to try some Chianti label Gallo Nero, it's a very good, all are red wine.

    After a heavy meal of Bistecca Fiorentina and coffee, it would be time for a few Grappas!
