Off to Florence

Today we planned to return to Florence, and during our research last night we discovered that the tickets for the Accademia (where the statue of David is displayed) was completely sold out. Hmmm! Not good as this is very high on Michael's list to see. So we have decided to cut short our stay at San Gimmy and spend the next couple of days in Florence. This will give us the opportunity to hopefully see David. It was sad to ...

We trained it to Florence 1st class and enjoyed the varied scenery with perfect weather again. The owner and staff at the Alesandra Hotel remember Mark from his college days when his class studied art for a summer under the watchful nun instructors. We are in their only suite and I am in the study to update the blog while Mark is sleeping. It is so cool in this old place. As Mark says, everything we see is very old, over 500 years old. We went to two museums and then climbed to ...

I walked into some of the nearest dress shops. I was lookibg for a few cheap tops or dresses because I ran out of clothes. Our washing machine has been broken since we got here so I haven't been able to do laundry. Since I didn't find anything new to buy I just washed a few shirts in ...

Walking with the Medici

Again not nearly enough time in Florence – too much to see too little time! But we certainly packed in what we could (pity we couldn't sneak down the road and see Boticelli's Venus, but you can't have everything!)

We did a walking tour of Florence, and heard much about the history of the place, the buildings and how, in centuries gone by, it had the 2nd largest population ...
