Fast and joyful
apply in Florence, but here it would be too fast, or too thin.
I've only seen two joggers in our three days here, but

amazing food, pastry stores with every delicacy, wine,
lovely little restaurants set in 15th century incredible
architecture and of course coffee bars everywhere. Yum,
