When I told a family friend in Firenze (Florence) that I was returning to Tuscany in mid-March for the Easter holidays, he said, “Marzo Pazzo”! which roughly translates to “Crazy March”. Indeed it was, at least weather-wise. Not knowing quite what to expect from the weather, I packed lots of warm sweaters and a heavy jacket.
Stepping off the airplane in Firenze, the thermometer read only 1 degree Celsius! Surely it wasn’t cold enough to snow, or was it?
