Margaret asked Frances Mayes:

If someone wanted to spend a week in Tuscany where would you send them so that they could truly experience Tuscany as a Tuscan and not just tourist sights? What would be the one "do not miss" item on your list? Love your books by the way!

Frances Mayes Walk along the Arno in Florence at dawn. Stay in the countryside and experience rural life. Get lost on back roads.
