Another hot day and we went on the Express train, via Roma to Firenze. The train got up to 293k - again very smooth. There were a lot of tunnels in the stretch from Roma to Firenze so Simon got some blogging done. We arrived just before 1pm and it was 33degrees. We got a taxi to hotel as it was so hot. Susan's lymphodema is doing really well in the …

A cantaloupe, the Duomo, baptistery and campanile

... other church domes, the beautiful verdant hills dotted with villas which surround the entire city ,the complex plan of the city streets, the Arno river, the great museum palace buildings ( the Pitti, the Uffizzi), the great city and palace gardens. I could hardly tear myself away.
And so to a delicious cake and coffee this time at home and another quick jaunt on my own- ah, the huge bronze ...

Week One, One Week Late

A travel blog entry by sharaimontana


... instantly! It was so relieving to have a nice, hot shower and a bed. We had a glass of wine to take the edge off and went to sleep. Highlight of the day: the feeling of relief when you arrive in your hostel with a warm shower and fresh calzone from the pizzeria Day 3: Positano Sorrento is beautiful. That is all. Soyoung told us that she took a direct train from Naples and had no problem. Lesson learned. We even talked to a policeman that day telling him our story and he said we should ...

Nightlife of Florence

A travel blog entry by schreinski


... good, but we actually got boo'd off stage! Hahaa and yes we do have videos! We then went to "Blue Velvet" where yet again it was "my birthday". After hours of clubbing with the parents and the roommates we tried to find the secret bakery, which was a fail, but we made it home around 4am and I went straight to bed after eating a huge bowl of popcorn. Time to show my parents around Florence tomorrow!

... appeals to your wallet. Hence, the street markets. Each town has one..the vendors are mostly the same and there is fresh produce, artesian cheeses, bread and sausage and the famous Porcetta! Underwear, jeans, sweaters, sheets, strainers, soap and fingernail polish. It's an organic flea market on steroids...and the atmosphere is so much fun. We like to watch the vendors set op and take down their booths. We don't ...

    Nice little hotel


    Good, central location, within walking distance from all of Florence's main sights. The rooms are small, but quiet and clean. The dining room staff could use a little friendliness assistance, but were okay. The desk staff was nice.

    My husband and I stayed at the Alba in October, 2003. It was a short walk from the Florence Rail Station (but you may need to ask directions!) We found it conveniently located to the central area of the city and also the tour buses left from near the rail station. The room we occupied was not as small as eg in Paris and it contained a small fridge. There were restaurants closeby.
