This first picture is a Tuscan soup called ribollita. My mom and I each had a bowl for lunch in Radda. We knew we were going to have another ridiculously long dinner but since it was going to be for 6+ hours, we also knew we needed to eat lunch. This soup was perfect. It was light, fairly veggie heavy, and a delicious lunch.
And yes, as it turns out, we did have our final, hours long dinner that night. It started with some anti-pasti, and then two types of pasta for the second course, both served family style. The first was tagliatelle with a mushroom sauce.
I can't say enough wonderful things about this trip. Beyond the food (which was obviously fantastic) our tour group was great, all the guides were wonderful, and every person we met was a pleasure. If you're ever looking for a small group tour in Europe that lets you sleep in and provides you with amazing food and drink, check out Tuscany Tours. Tell them I sent you. Ciao!
