    Initially we noticed this hotel on a web site promoting last minute deals and it was offering a room including breakfast for €39 where every other hotel in the region was around 80 to 130 range. We decided not to book on line but just turn up and check it out first. On arrival we were pleased to find that there were still rooms available but the asking price now was €49 including breakfast. We did ask about the €39 deal but was politely told that was on line and last night , we tried to haggle but without joy. Still at €49 it was a good deal so we took two rooms between the four of us. The rooms were a good size not big but enough room to be comfortable. The bathrooms and linen were very clean and the heating was working well. A little too well in fact we turned down the room heating and opened the windows to cool the rooms down which made it very comfortable. The remainder of the hotel however was very warm and we found this uncomfortable. We were here in Early November so the outside temp was cool and the pool was not an option. There is a busy road at the front but with the double glazed windows the noise was not noticeable, until we opened the windows to cool the room, but at night no issues at all. The staff were all friendly and eager to help us, with directions and any other questions we had, the language barrier was not an issue, the hotel reception manager spoke very good English. Breakfast was very good offering a selections of cereals and breads cold meats cheese, pastries yogurts, fresh fruit and tea and coffee. Overall we were very happy write the hotel and its staff and would stay here again no problem. As for location it was a 20 minute walk up to the old city or a bus from outside the hotel for around €3 very well located.

    The next day we drove to Florence to mingle with the thousands of other tourists. We did a quick tour of the highlights as we had parked in the centre and we were conscious of how much we were paying for parking. We also walked past a little boy with his family, wearing his Carlton AFL jersey. Nic was tempted to yell out 'go Swans' but didn't want …

    ... choice but to skip out! It's not like we didn't try a few times to pay. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and for the next 3 hours we learned all about the Catterdrale, Libereria Piccolomini, the Pailo - the bareback horse race which was going to be run in a weeks time and the 17 contrada of the city who are vying for the horse race - a kind of state of origin type rivalry. The Palio, at Piazza del Campo only 10 contrade compete in each race and it is not a touristic event, and ...

    ... have one. Mary has cassata and tiramsu, Troy has Niccola (hazelnut) and Rocher and they were yummo! We walk around for a little while longer and come 5pm we decided we were both so very tired so we went back to our campsite. I think we both need more sleep, just way too many early mornings. lots and lots of walking and you know its tiring been a tourist but its a great job and someone has to do it right? ha ha!

    ... arrive there. My group took a side trip into Rome to see about acquiring some tickets for la copa d'Italia, a soccer game to be played in Rome the following week. Via many conversations with locals, we succeeded in finding a place that sells tickets, but it was closed as it was Saturday afternoon. Disappointed but undefeated we continued on ...

    ... flag and everything! The man selling them had been slightly seedy, but I didn't mind too much. I got my sandals. Nathan also had a mission. For a while he had wanted some terminator sunglasses. SO he shopped. In italy people selling product on the street must have a license. If you do not have a license, you will be fined. There are in fact ways around this though, as I will describe. You simply attach all of your wares, such ...
