What fun change in energy from Venice. The view as we came into town was exciting. The train station was simple to navigate and not nearly a risky as some guidebooks seem to indicate.
The walk to our room was a blur of exciting sites, sounds and smells. We passed a cheese sausage shop that made my jaw drop. We got settled in and headed out.
We passed the San Lorenzo market it was a hoot. Barbara and Bob never seemed to look up so they never saw the Duomo comming. As we stepped into the square they gasped in unison as if they hade been punched. It was quite funny.
We spent the rest of the evening wandering down to the Arno. We had an excelent meal at Guido's and slep like logs.
I LOVE bread. To be frank I found the bread in Venice to be a dissapointment. Florence saved me there was good bread every where. I had some even before Barb ad Bob were awake.
We headed out after some excelent coffee. I have wanted to see the art in florence since I was a kid. Belive me it was no dissapointment. I am not sure how somthing like the David can live up to the hype but it really does.
The most facinating thing for me was watching the effect it has on people the are veiwing it. Absolutely transformative.
We just loved to wander aimlessly through the streets find something to eat and watch people. What a pagent.
- Pros:Easy to get around on foot & art everywhere
- Cons:There is only one.
- In a nutshell:Do not lower your expectations
