Day in Florence


Bon Giorno! The City of Florence is thriving on this very hot Thursday,  Florence is the capital of Tuscany and only a train ride away from Montecatini! The streets were crowded with tourists enjoying the beauty of this incredible city !  My friends and I wore ourselves to the bone today, walking  the city, learning  the ancient history,  shopping, taking photos and eating!  We were joined by Ennio, who you see in the photos and his guide.  The street markets had some wonderful leathers. Our  purchases  of handbags, shoes and market finds required most of us to buy additional luggage for our return flight. Tomorrow we are off to the Cinque Terre known as the region of Liguria. We will be   taking a boat to visit the coastal cities.
