Spent Sat and Sun exploring Florence again. This week we get the fierenze card to see the museums for three days. Yesterday we meet up with Luca and had a great day walking up to San Miniato al Monte and Piazza Michelangelo, nice day but windy. Took lots of pictures, walked all over town and went for a nice pasta lunch. Today we rest, shop and rest some more. The next 3 days will be hard work waiting in ques and viewing all the galleries. Will talk again soon.

The folks who had the lease on the campsite (they had it for 50 years),.. had the lease terminated and were given access to a new campsite 6 Klms out of the centre of town, on the river. After researching other options, we finally decided to stay in this new site and put ...

Historical Florence

... Chapels where members of the ruling Medici family were buried. The opulence of the La Cappella dei Principi (Chapel of Princes) was amazing. The walls and floor totally covered in different coloured marble catches the eye. It was a pity that photography was not allowed in the chapel because only pictures can really tell the true story. The money that would've been spent to at the time would have been astronomical. A fair amount of narcissism ...
