Have I mentioned what a pain in the ass driving a car in Italy is? I learned how to drive in Mexico but this is ridiculous! Let's just say that leaving Rome in our rental car (a Mercedes free upgrade) was quite an adventure. Rules of the road do not apply to motorcycles. They drive wherever they want. The roads are laid out poorly and street names are optional and change frequently. Turn signals do not come standard on the cars ...
... and chatted with the sexy men in black . Was fun, then back on the bike and zoom zoom as we hadn't made it to our first destination yet.
Back with Ken we were very high up following the mountain range. Beautiful views but still rainy, just light drizzle at times, not really rain. Needed a coffee so stopped at a fairly deserted town.

Our last night in Florence we went to a restaurant and some of the guys ordered a 1.25kg of steak which was worth about 42EU, that's a whole lot of steak! I had some, it was worth all the pennies.
To be honest, I didn't know much about Florence and any of the attractions there but I still had an awesome time!!
Next stop Orvieto before ...
