The Hotel Room is of a good size and was clean. I wasn't impressed with the organisation of the hotel and although the staff were polite, when problems occurred there was no confidence that they would be resolved. IE, no bath plug, No phone working in the room and we required an extra pillow. Minor I know, but necessary. That being said, during our stay we did receive another pillow. Wi-Fi was great and free. The Swimming Pool was excellent and after I had been relieved of my wallet at Pisa by some scumbag, reception allowed me to call Australia free of charge and cancel the credit cards. All in all - I would stay here again and enjoyed my time here. Very nice food is served here.

The days have been starting earlier and earlier, 8:30 am from now on! After our art history class we headed over to Santa Maria Novella. It was beautiful from the outside and inside. I loved the patterning on the ceilings through out the whole church. We spent much of the time sketching inside this church.
Next we headed over to the Church of San Lorenzo, it looks rather plain from them the outside- apparently Michaelangelo ...
... some money…and headed further into the center of town. Here we chanced upon the Palazzo Vecchio filled with many marble and bronze statues, some of roman and local origin. There was a replica of Michelangelo’s statue of David along with Hercules and the centaur…amazing sculptures!
I treated myself to some yummy gelato and we headed back to the campsite. On the way we swung into a local grocery store and I became inspired! Grabbing a few choice ...
... around the city for a while seeing sites like the Duomo, which is an enormous dome on the top of a church in the center of town, the River Arno, which cuts through the city of Florence separating the north and south banks. The city of Florence is beautiful and looks to be very well preserved. My sister and brother in law, Megan and Adam, were in Florence nearly a week before us and they left us with one major recommendation, eat ...
