    Though we had to go up 4 floors with our bags, once we arrived they gave us a key for the elevator, which was amazing!! =) The sheets are clean and the matresses too. The shower is great, nice warm water and the room is heated. Very recommendable, though the blankets should be washed.

    ... rain, to a somewhat nondescript city wall. We meet our guide, a charming Italian lady, who for the next hour and a half, takes us through the winding streets until we arrive at an amazing cathedral. We first visit the resting place of the relics of St Catherine. At the back of an ornate alter, delicately lit, sits her head, and to the side, in a vitrine, her finger. Siena and Florence were long warring factions, and it transpired ...

    ... things were relatively close together. Instead we ended up spending a little extra to book a couple tours, and it worked really well for us. On the first night we ventured out and had dinner at the Piazza Navona. Our first bit of Italian food! Yum! Andrew had lasagne and I had spaghetti. We love the Italian food. The next morning we set out with the intention to get tickets down the road for the Colosseum and the Roman Forum so we could avoid the queues (at this stage ...

    ... so we went on a bit of a wild goose chase but had no luck even finding a sports store in the end. Ended up having BK for tea cos finding a supermarket and camping gas is just too much effort in the heat! mUch to my dismay there were 4 bus loads of contiki staying at the camp that night, obviousloy didnt get any sleep as a result! (so inconsiderate).

    ... When we were descending, it started thundering and lightning in the distance, and of course we were on a huge metal structure... thankfully we made it off safely and, before going to the tower, had looked up bus routes home (let's just say we thought our hotel was a lot closer than it was). We walked to a museum across from the Eiffel Tower that had a bus stop that went on our street nearby. We waited for the bus for around 3 minutes and hopped on. I'm pretttty ...

    Being in Italy is definitely a different experience than being in America. There are small habits and rules Italians live by that you would never see in America:

    • Even if it is 65 degrees outside, in January you will never see an Italian in anything less than a wool coat, hat, scarf, boots, and tights.
    • There is no such thing as a "big breakfast" here. Anything besides a coffee and a cornetto (pastry) ...
