The Enoteca Boccaccio is located directly across from East Carolina University's semester study abroad classroom building. Andrea is a dear friend of ours and he teaches us Italian while we help him with his English. This is the most authentically beautiful, welcoming place to get a sandwich for lunch or an apertif before dinner. Sharing a coffee, spritz or glass of wine at the Enoteca is one of our favorite ways to relax!
The Tuscany, one of the most beautiful Italian regions, is known throughout the world for its Landscapes and for the Works of Art that it houses (It is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance). Six localities have been designated World Heritage Sites: the Historical Center of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pienza, the Square of the Cathedral of Pisa with the Leaning Tower and the Val d'Orcia. It is in the central Italy and borders with Emilia Romagna (north), Marche and Umbria (east) and Lazio (South). The West coast is bathed from the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea; here we can find the islands of the Tuscan archipelago including the island of Elba. The regional capital is Florence and the other provinces are: Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena.
