Ryan and I beat the heat of the day up with an early start - we finished the last of the figs we'd picked straight from the neighbouring trees and packed up once more to head back to Florence to return our precious Panda. I drove to get a little more practice in with the benefit of an instructor - next time, I'll be on my own!
It was …
... We watched some kids run into a creperie and decided it was time for Mom to try her first Nutella crepe. They are so gooey and chocolatey and sweetly delicious. Once we were in Santa Croce, we only had a little time, so went straight to the Masters' tombs. I can't explain the absolute disbelief and surrealty of standing in front of the spot where Galileo, Michelangelo and Dante rest. I mean, you're literally 10 feet from the father of modern astronomy, the painter of the ...
... see a structure like that leaning.. we spent the rest of the evening taking cheesy touristy pictures (obviously!!!).. it was a lot of fun! we did not buy the 15-20 euro ticket to climb the Tower.

... for today. *sigh* never again- I can't bring myself to do it. This is how you know I make no sense- regular size cow? yup. Baby cow? Nope! Fried pork skin? yup. Pork chop? Nope! Chicken breast? yup. Turkey breast? Nope!
Dinner of course concluded with espresso for both and grappa for Brian.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Golf Florence
Such a disappointing end to an otherwise wonderful trip around Tuscany. There is nothing to recommend about this hotel. The room was awful, two horrible beds pushed together and sold as a double, dirty and dated decor, disgusting breakfast, bad location and the single rudest and least helpful staff of the whole trip.
