Perfect last evening in Firenze

What a perfect way to bid Italy goodbye: this evening couldn't have been better. Drinks on a rooftop bar overlooking the Arno and Palazzo Vecchio first, and then a feast at one of Elia and Michele's favorite restaurants, Bireria Centrale, a former brewery refashioned as a Tuscan/Northern Italian place with amazing food, wine, service and ambiance. Tom ordered pici con cinghialle, boar, and I almost cried when I received my tagliatelle al tartufo. It was so incredibly good and gorgeous.
