I took a tour with a group of women in 2009 to Rome and Florence. It was my second trip to Rome and the first to my beloved Firenze (Florence). I garnered a love of the Italian Renaissance after I read Jeanne Kalogridis, "The Borgia Bride." It was fiction based on fact and I was enthralled.

During my second trip, we took a day trip to Tivoli (part of Tuscany). We spent the whole day in a cooking class learning to make pasta from scratch, ricotta pie, and saltimbocca. The saltimbocca is a wonderful appetizer and I hope you like it.
