    ... it back to my room around 3pm. Put my feet up (ie jumped into bed!), and am still there at 4.30. It has started raining while I am here though there was no sign of that earlier, and I have heard thunderstorms. So seems like a good afternoon to have a wee rest.

    ... a Florentine landmark - the City Hall). It looks like a castle and has rustic stonework. It was fun to sit outside, eat and people watch in the bustling Piazza. Again, we were thankful that the good weather was allowing us this opportunity. We took nothing for granted and were thankful for each day of good weather.

    At 4pm we stood in-line for about 10 minutes for our 'pre-reserved' reservation into the Accademia Gallery which contains the famous ...

    ... him the reins to the city. He staged book and art burnings in the Piazza della Signoria just outside the city hall. Botticelli and other painters repudiated their own secular paintings and threw many of them on the bonfires.

    But his rigidity and rule via thuggery proved too much for the Florentines. So after 4 years he was arrested in this very monastery and dragged down to the city hall. Following a few days of torture, he was hung in the same Piazza ...
