Loved this hotel. We were only here for one night but it was fantastic. We had lots of space in our room, big comfy beds, a huge bathroom, and this was just for a twin share room. The breakfast bar was full of beautiful foods. We didn't get a chance to explore the grounds, bu there looked to be lovely gardens to walk around, and explore.

We arrived in Florence last night to one of the best hotels on the trip so far. It's beautifully designed, spacious, and has the Tuscan feel. Florence is one of our one night only cities, so we must make the most of it while we can.

Because Italians don't like to get coffee to go, they enjoy it standing up at a bar, talking to each other. I like the Italian way:) So far we have visited Rome and Florence, and we are still planning what's next in Italy....
Miss u all!!!!
Along the way we happened upon a beautiful church called St. Ignatius and discovered amazing paintings on the ceiling. So even though we didn't see the Sistine Chapel we saw some incredible art works.
So many people in the city. Lots of tour groups including groups of Italian school students on excursions to Rome. We visited the pantheon that both Tim and I had studied in history and art history at school. So amazing ...
The party is down to one. Friday the 22nd was the last night that I spent with Tony and Louis as they departed for Madrid at midnight to fly back to Salt Lake. I will be all alone from here on out, for the rest of the trip it will just be Me, Myself, and the Italians. Well until I leave Italy, but I have 20 more days of my adventure left!
Today was my first day rolling solo and final day in Florence, there was still a lot to see so I had to get my hustle on! I ...
