Full day in Florence then back to Roma!

... photos and explore a little more, they headed back to check out some more leather goods!

We met at the hotel to pick up luggage at about 3, and caught the 4.06 train to Rome. It was a lovely train, clean, fast and well appointed.

Once at the Termini in Rome, we were well acquainted with the station and found our way to the platform for the airport train. A 30 min ride and we were at the Rome airport, close to where we would stay for the night. ...

... that hit the spot while we perused the menu. We ordered some Montelpulciano Vino Noble(top of the line Montepulciano) and Rossi di Montepulciano (slighly lower end) wine to go with our gnocchi and pork loin with strawberry sauce. Everything was delicious and lived up to the atmosphere. Justin's Noble was more full bodied with stronger notes, the Rossi was lighter and slightly fruitier (more my time of wine anyway).
