My cousin-once-removed Emily and her husband own the Paperback Exchange in Florence. They aren't members of CS, but, stop in and say hello if you are in the neighborhood.

Via delle Oche, 4 50122 Florence, Italy

055 293460

Here's what it says in a google search:
.....also a focal point for the English-speaking community in Florence . The
store actively supports local Anglo-American initiatives and holds
regular events such as poetry readings, literary discussions and the
children's story hour where members of the Florence International
Theatre Company read and perform.

Have a great trip,

Hi Jerome, Sounds like a wonderful trip. I am thinking about doing a longer stay in Italy, maybe 3 or 4 weeks.
Just visit a couple of places and find a small town here and there, drink wine and eat great food. Any suggestions as for the small town experience.

Hi Dianne:
Not sure because the last time I was in Italy I did all the big town touristy things. Trains are goof in Italy though so you should be able to get around well. the southern part (heel of Italy)- Puglia - where I'll end up is the least developed part of Italy.
Good luck in your search.
