Day 56 Gambassi Terme to Colle Val d'Elsa 16 miles

A travel blog entry by stuartkil


... the next I was struggling to get past the masses. It must have been what the old pilgrims would have felt entering a city. Everything was loud and busy, folk wore fancy (well, cleaner anyway) clothes, talked in different languages and looked at me as if I was a complete down and out.

We went up to the main house to have our ...

Friday we wandered to the Ponte Vecchio, which is a bridge that has shops on it. We were expecting maybe vendors? Or at least cheaper things, but they were all jewelry and gold. It was nice to window shop them though, since that's where they put all the jewelry. We then wandered around taking pictures in front of the famous Duomo, shopping, etc. and before we knew it, it was dinnertime. We went to ...
