HEAT! I'm not sure if it was...

<font color=red>HEAT!</font> I'm not sure if it was because we had come from the Netherlands to Nice to Firenze in the middle of August, but it was very hot! It did not fall below 30 C during the day while we were there and I heard it was as high as 36 C. If you are not used to the heat, be careful! Avoid the midday sun (not that we did!), wear a hat (like a tourist!) and drink loads of water! Chilled, bottled water is best, prices for 1.5/2 litres vary dramatically (2000-5000 LIRA) so find a cheap shop and keep going back! I would not trust the water fountains dotted around the city myself, apart from face-splashing. We got through about 3-4 litres a day between us but we were on the go almost all the time.
