We woke up early in order to pack, have our free breakfast, and prepare for our 12pm train ride from Venice to Florence. This was the first day of rain in Venice and luckily we were on our way out. The hotel front desk staff said that Venice was crying because of our departure. We're not sure about that one.
We made it to the train station a little early and waited for our platform to be announced so the jamming session could begin. We were ...

After that we got to go above the ceiling of the main hall of Palazzo Vecchio and see the structure that lets it stand. It was pretty neat to see that, considering right before I came here I read Dan Brown's book that involves that area.
Yesterday evening we had a group dinner up in Fiesole, a good bus ride up a hill ...
