For a future vacation, try Montecatini, in Italy. My wife and I spent a week there once -- it's a 20 minute train ride west of Florence, easy travel to Lucca, Pisa, Siena, etc. What's great is that there's a large public park with a red clay facility that hosted some of Italy's Davis Cup matches when Panatta was active. About 10 gorgeous clay courts, 3 of them in a bubble in the event of rain, one of them in a small stadium setting, all of them available for about 10 Euros an hour, with a teaching pro who has a roster of fine players from which he'll make matches for you. Had a terrific time there.
