... walk was to get us to the Duomo but we took a wrong turn and ended up in the middle of a market. Just looking was our call, but I could see Paul was keen to come back latter. The only sight I really wanted to get to was the Ponte de Vecchio. I'd been to Florence twice and not managed to cross it for a look at all the glitter so it was a must do.
