... Also because we are not from Italy and we spent over
their tax threshold, we didn’t have to pay the large tax they have on items.
After this we headed off on our Florence walking tour. We
had to have a local guide as it is illegal for external guided to take tours
around Florence. We walked past fake David and the other statues in the square.
We also walked past the statues of famous Italians including Michael Angelo,
Donatello and Galileo. Leonard ...
... 5 minutes walk from the train station and close to the markets at the Piazza square. The markets were still open so we had a nosy, then found a great place for dinner.

We had another favoloso day, 20 degrees and sunny.
Sad to see our trip coming too soon to a close.
