Greetings from Florence April 16, 2012
Hello, dear friends,
We left Rome yesterday, by train, on our way to Florence. The Italian train system is very impressive. It’s clean, prompt and friendly. But the best thing of all, was the scenery.
When traveling, you’re at the mercy of the travel agent. You never know what kind of hotel you’re going to end up with. Even compared to our hotel in Rome, the Hotel Santa Maria Novella, in Florence is first rate! Let me show you around!
Once again, we lucked out in the travel guide department. There’s so much to see here and Carolina was so pleasant and knowledgeable. Being here only for about 36 hours really doesn’t do the city justice. There’s so much more to see. But I’m thankful to just have had a chance to be here.
I would make a terrible tour guide, because I cannot remember names, places, or dates! But I’ll share some pictures with you to give you a flavor of the town.
Tomorrow, we go see the David statue, before getting back on the train for Padova. Stay tuned, for more adventure!
