... pattern. More of those magnificent carved wooden doors built for giants and a statue of Dante on one side. Crossed the River Arno and followed the signs to Plazzale Michelangelo up the steps at the top of the hill.

Next we off to a cafe were they served us a sfoglia (type of custard filled pastry). It was here that I was happy to detach myself from the tour ...
... 8, just as darkness was setting in. The first half of the trip was through semi-industrial area and on the autostrade, so not much to see, but after the it was like something from a book. Huge fields of sunflowers were beautiful, and of course the patchwork of vines and olive trees. The roads were no narrower than in the UK, but took a while to adjust given you're on the wrong side!
The B&B is beautiful. We have a large corner room on the first floor of ...
