A great stay at this hostel. Sylvia (front desk) was friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was included in the price. Internet was free although there was only one computer. It was a five minute walk from the shops and restaurants of the town square which was great for practicing my rudimentary Italian! It's a good location if you want a quiet country retreat.

... back but as it was Sunday the only people that were out was silly
tourists like ourselves. Reaching Doge Palace, named after the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the former Republic of Venice, we went inside with our pre-purchased tickets to
look around which included the great council rooms, many a formal room and of

This afternoon, we had some free time to do some shopping and walk to the Ponte Vecchio, which was extremely crowded.The crowds here are worse than Rome (maybe because all the people are crowded into a smaller area!). We walked and walked, eventually getting back to the hotel about 4pm.
We then went to the Post Office ...
... petite town. The day had turned down right chilly as we walked up and down the sloping streets of Sienna. The vistas available were breathtaking. We ate dinner and proceeded back to Florence on the road to HELL! Lol! The drive back was not so great. I was crammed in the back of this plastic toy they called a automobile with shopping bags and nowhere to hang on to! We were already to be back at the room so Charlie ...
... assumed Florence to be more like a village in the beautiful farm lands of Tuscany; so incorrect. Florence is bustling with fancy shopping, cobble stone roads, and so many restaurants my belly expands just with the smells.
The food is beautiful as well. Tiny mountains of gelato, thin crusted pizza with an assortment of toppings (including tuna - I did not try this), and pastries - holy moly are there pastries...
Will be in florence for a few days, more to ...
