Flag of Italy  , Tuscany,
Friday, October 4, 2013

Our walking tour this morning took us into the heart of Florence. At 8.30am it was quite deserted but by the time our walk had finished, there were people everywhere. Tourists - the bane of my life! The lanes are crowded, the shops are crowded and they stand in the middle and won't shift! We left for Rome just after lunch, a little poorer than when we arrived. Into Rome around 4pm and busy, busy, busy.
Travelled through the countryside of Tuscany. Part of the Tuscany landscape are pencil pines - quite interesting. Tuscany, from what we saw, is as I imagined, only more beautiful. With houses in terracotta, and the mustard colour and the green vines terraced on the hills it looks amazing; add in the villages perched on the top of hills, and the scenery is magical.
Our night was spent with much hilarity at an Italian restaurant with musicians. Great night, great food, company and music.
