Something happened to the weather this morning. When I woke up, it was a paltry 8 degrees and for one weird moment, I thought I was back in Canberra! I know the temperature in Florence deteriorates over the month of September, but give me a break - it's not nice to go from 20 to 8 in one night!!. Boo hoo!! We headed off (me with a cardigan, but Garth with just a tee-shirt) to Pistoia which is a town on the train route to Lucca. The area surrounding Pistoia ...
... statues. We then headed back to the piazza Del Signoria for lunch. Dani and I ate lunch where Karl and I did a few years ago. The crowds by this time were very overwhelming but the restaurant was on the piazza in the shade. We had pasta and lots of water for lunch!

Ahh Florence in the summer is amazing crowds are not too bad. We have undertaken lots of shopping and sight seeing. The on / off buses are the way to go to see everything.

... visits. Ken went to the Bargello twice, the Uffizi twice and we both went to Vecchio twice, as well as single visits to lots of others. We definitely got our value.
The concert we saw at San Spirito was 13euros each.
The train from Venice was 29 euros each. We are a 5 minute walk from the station, though it did take us longer on the day we arrived.
