Off to the train and onward to Florence, about 1 ½ hours away. Ws a nice ride through the countryside from a railway point of view. Taxi to our lodging so generously provided by Marlan [not a fish]. And WOW!! Way above my norm to say the least. I have always wanted to stay in a Florance style palace and we are. It's the Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo, city house for the Nicclini family. Check out the video of the bedroom, I guess I owe Marlan a big one. Spent the day doing a light walk around taking in the St. Johns day midevel parade [Marlan took in the "soccer" ;lmatch] and then the evening out doing a little photography and taking in the 10pm fireworks. All and all, very nice..
