I cannot manage to finish this one... I loved Under the Tuscan Sun, but this one just is too... wordy (haha - yes, I know its a BOOK). Mayes spouts off names of writers, artists, historical figures and places that we are apparently supposed to be familiar with, but most just leaves me feeling uneducated and untraveled - neither of which I consider myself. Her descriptions are just a little too verbose. And, in agreement with the other reviewer, all that comes across as snobbery. So I will skim the rest of the parts I find appealing and list it.
