Florence and the Machines!!

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 …

Bye bye Tuscany, hello Roma!

Our 5 days in Tuscany have come to an end. Farewell meal the night before at our restaurant of choice in Radda in Chianti (Le del Chianti) and had one of the best Italian meals I have ever had! We will part company with Neil and Christine for a week before joining up again in Sicily. Early rise and off to Florence to catch a train to Roma. Only 1 hour 20 minutes and we were in Roma. Hurling along at speeds up ...

... last time i was here that there was also a fountain created by a Sienese sculptor Jacopo della Quercia who was the most important sculptor of 15th-century. Just goes to show you that depending on your frame of mind will depend on what you choose to see. There is a difference between looking and seeing.

Still unsure about my accommodation for the night and not wanting to freak about it I finished my spectacular ice cream and decided that ...

... lunch we got back on our bikes and started the long journey back to the castle/vineyard. I was somewhat intoxicated after having drank a couple of glasses of wine at lunch. I couldn't help myself... I love the stuff. I did discover however, that wine doesn't mix well with riding uphill on a bicycle. The trip was grueling. And that was just to get to the most grueling part of all. The whole day, Andy had warned us of a ...

... maybe? Actually, I probably haven't done it justice in my description, it was a fantastic meal, and our chef teacher as well as the other Australian couple who were doing the course too were really great. After our course was a bit more of an explore of the Tuscan countryside, then dropped the car back off in Florence and headed out for a bit more of an explore of Florence's sights (aka shops!). Couldn't leave florence without several leather purchases, so Caroline stepped ...

    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.
