Started slowly this morning – it was quite foggy outside with a little bit of rain. I did washing etc, Di wanted to take it a bit easy because she didn't sleep well. Craig and Phil have gone for a big long walk in the local hills. It was great to take it easy. We eventually did go into Pistoia for another look around at things we hadn’t seen – ...
... Stephanie's. Later that night we all went out for pre-dinner margaritas and later made our way to "Cantina La Giostra".

After a short walk to drop our bags off at the Hotel Davanzati, an awesome family-run hotel, we dived in to some touristy attractions. We snacked on some deep fried Italian sandwiches (the best...ever), hit up a few Florence markets, and visited the Duomo. For those that don't know, the Duomo is an incredible church in the centre of Florence. Definitely one of our faves and that says something, considering there are ...
