The Da Vinci Code - Quest Solution (19 of 24)

Today's puzzle is the first of the final level of difficulty. The symbol challenge increased from a 5 x 5 x 5 to a 6 x 6 x 6 which made the challenge no more difficult then prior challenges. The puzzle difficulty is completly dependent upon the starting pieces you are given. I have been able to work most of these puzzles without having to guess any of the symbol placements.

My solution to today's puzzle is below.

During his Italian Journeys William Dean Howelss enjoys a beefsteak and potatoes with a half-bottle of what kind of wine? Ligurian

Post your solution to today's challenge in the comments below this post.

To buffoni88 -- if you click "Get a new puzzle" over and over, you might find one that looks simpler than the others. I concluded that the puzzles with more symbols inserted for you (i.e. ones that you can't move) are generally easier.
