Besides going to Galleria Borghese, I had no grand plans for today. There were many other things I wanted to see but I wasn't sure how much energy or enthusiasm I'd have, nor where the day would take me after the gallery, so I played it by ear and it couldn't have turned out any better! For a planner like myself, it was nice to have a less structured day. And since my reservation for the Galleria Borghese wasn't until 11 am, I even slept in!

DAY 29 Had a couple of hours to kill, so took public transport up and out of Florence to check out the city, best value for money, 1.20 euro for a sightseeing tour, then off to the markets, much to Brants disgust!

Arrived at our apartment in Rome ...
