This hotel looks like it was decorated in 1970 and perhaps it was as 30 years is fairly modern by Voltera standards.

The location is perfect and the room is comfortable.

The whole city appeared to have been deserted except for the older Italian men who congregate in seemingly every Italian town to talk in the streets- and people say women are the talkative ones... We grabbed a drink and sat in the main square just taking a ...
We slept nearly 12 hours on our first night here but we seemed fine during the day. As I write this blog it is nearly midnight but all feels normal and I think I can sleep (Deb is already sleeping), so I am hopeful that jet lag is over.
The sites today were all interesting but the heat and the walking takes its toll relatively quickly. I can see why siesta time is well thought of here. Our morning consisted ...
Today we were going to do a walking 'tour' of the Northern areas of Firenze. ...It didn't really work out, hahaha.
Due to yesterday's misadventures, we left at around 12:30 (my fault), almost went to Il Duomo because the line was shortish but couldn't really because apparently you can't wear sleeveless shirts (I'm guessing religious reasons) and mom was wearing one, so we went walking after all.
In order to get pamphlets for the tours (like the wine tour ...
