Set off at 8.15 for a brisk walk to catch the bus for our day trip to Siena and San Gimignano. First stop Siena where we were taken on a walking tour of the city - it was terrific - and when we stopped for a lunch break had a lovely surprise when we met up with Gino, Deb, John and Felicity who had driven there from Viareggio for the day. We shared a lovely lunch of pizzas and wine (of course) before we had to head back to the bus for the next part of our tour - ...
... in an apartment together! The taxi driver took us to our apartment which is on a street called Via della Scala! It is right by the Santa Maria Novella so it is in a great location!
OUR APARTMENT IS HUGE! It is owned by nobility and they rent it out to ISI to let their international students live in. We were so hungry and tired that we literally just put ...
... the Galileo Museum which was really interesting showing many instruments and devices for star gazing, experiments and medical discoveries over 500 years. Our Chianti wine journey followed sitting in the shade enjoying 29 degrees and people watching. Dinner tonight was pasta and great conversations with other Aussies on their Florence adventure.

... got it's name stitched on to a bib, unfortunately we have heard rumours of a name change since so looks like he will have gained himself a nickname before even being born! I also picked myself up a nice handbag, I don't know what has happened to me on this trip but it seems I am turning into a real girl! Soon enough it was time to hop on the next train and so, knackered, we reluctantly wandered towards another sleepless night.
