... a small town , 30 minutes outside of Florence. Beautiful church, winding roads and gorgeous foliage found on a side road of interest. To avoid the afternoon heat, we went to a local designer mall. Did not buy much, as we found it a bit expensive but liked the lunch we had of paninis, espressos and rich desserts.

Day 2 - Monday. We traipsed around the streets today along with all the other tourists, just generally looking and a bit of window shopping. It poured while we were having lunch, so we spent a couple of hours back at the apartment while it cleared, before getting back out. Here the shops don't close until 7-7:30. While at home we worked out a bit more of our internal travel, booking some flights within Spain and bus from here to our next stop, ...
