Lovely Florence

My daughter participated in one of the popular Study Abroad programs offered in Florence. We'd both fallen in love with the City during a trip there in 2000 and vowed to return. 2002 and 2003 were the years that alowed that to happen. She's now living in Italy!

Room 10 at the Bella Vista Penzione

By all means, try to stay here, in this room. What a vista. I tried to remain awake to see all of the lights at night and woke earlier in order to see them blink out one by one in the morning. The bells can be heard from all across the city - what a joy!

    You could use the same warning about the prices of drinks in Florence! Daylight robbery.
