On our way to Florence today we stopped in Assisi. It was a small, rustic town on the top of a large hill. It was beautiful. We had a chance to eat lunch, shop a little and explore the Medivel Churches in the town. This is where St. Francis founded the Franciscan Monastic Order in the Middle Ages. It was great history lesson.
We also visited a ceramics workshop and store where we bought our weight in hand painted ceramics. This area is known for it's ceramics, chocolate, truffles and lace - all of which are traveling home with us as well.

Afterwards we headed to Florance for an awesome pizza dinner that ended with Cream Puffs!!! MMMMmmmmmmm!!!! Everyone is celebrating both the 150 years of Italian unity and St. Patrick's Day. It's awesome.

We also had a chance to check out the awesome leather that Florence is known for. Tomorrow we get to go shopping!
