About 90 minutes later we arrived in Florence. We both felt like we were able to breathe again! It was like moving from tension to relaxation. Florence was quieter, friendlier, people smiled and spoke to us, we had room to move. Got a couple of bus tickets and found our bus and headed off to find our accommodation.

On Tuesday I was so relieved to see the sun back out as I had a three hour private photography lesson.

As it was raining heavily, with raincoats and umbrellas, we began our tour right outside the hotel where Freya explained the architectural significance of structural features we would be seeing throughout the city. Freya is very knowledgeable with a post graduate degree in art history.
