After a 'briefing' which included a list of things to do along with maps, etc we headed out. Florence is a very walkable city and we managed to find the historic center with few problems. We spent the majority of the afternoon wandering, taking it all in.
The next day found us heading out for our included half day city tour. This one would be a bit different in that it was mostly a walking tour. We would start at the Academia, where we would be introduced to Michelangelo's sculpture of David
After our tour of the Ufizzi we would continue our walk through historic Florence by crossing the Ponte Vecchio and strolling home along the banks of the Arno river. Our third, and final day, in Florence would be spent doing some shopping at the historic City Market prior to hopping the bus to watch a Rugby match between Australia & Italy. The Australian team is staying at our hotel and they had given us free tickets to the match. The adventure of getting to and from the game will remain one of the trips highlights! And, I think we may have a few new Rugby fans in our group!
