Next stop on our trip was Florence. The Hubby and I had collected our car following the train ride from Cinque Terre into LaSpezia and the best thing we did was to get the GPS NeverLost upgrade.
NeverLost does lose its connection to the satellite once in a while, but we were still able to find our way around Northern Italy without too many problems, and wondered how we could have managed before GPS.
We dropped the car off at the Florence airport and then got a cab into our next hotel. We would walk everywhere from there.
Little disclaimer here. Be ready for a picture explosion. Not that my travel posts are ever short on pictures, but I'm just sayin'.
The Hubby noticing the door type coverings for the shops. Half come down to connect with the half that lift up. They are ornately carved wood and we noticed the beautiful old hinges and locks that held them together. He bought me some cool jewelry of Rose Gold. (Thanks Hun)
End of story.
But there was more to see in this old art capital.
This is after climbing up to the base of the Duomo. Heaven and hell are represented from the top to the bottom. Quite imaginative.
One thing we didn't get a picture of was of us eating a Gelato. Seriously almost daily we would go get a yummy cone or cup of various different flavors of the cold wonderful stuff. Should really have a picture of that. It was how we spent 15% of our time. (Insert smile here)
We ate huge Florentine style steak which we shared, and pasta, fresh vegetables, and fish. We continued to walk our feet off, which made us sleep well so we could be ready for the next leg of our trip.
Here we come Prague.
