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.

On arrival we went into a Big Brand Leather Shop and we were shown how they plied their trade. This shop is a first class shop with high quality leather goods and they had an excellent …

It was a bit uncomfortable, but I was getting used to that after all of the buses I have been on. Once they opened the doors in Rome, I realized how incredibly hot it really was as the fresh air rushed in. I was truly amazed....we pulled up in Rome, ...

There was a time when Firenze was one of the most important cities in the world. After all, it was their banks and their money (the florin) which financed everyone from the Kings of England to the papacy itself, and it was their city that served as a trading hub for all of Europe. Indeed, the language of Firenze in the 14th and 15th centuries is recognized today as ...
... lights the fireworks and the flies back to the alter. If the bird does not make it back that means bad things for the year. The last time the bird did not make it back was 1966 and that was the year of the horrific flood. In addition, all the segments of the fireworks must also go off without a hitch to assure a good harvest. I will say I was a little worried as even though it was sunny at 9 a.m., the angry clouds rolled in at about 10 and the skies opened with ...
