Fly Me To The 'Moon, Part Two: Firenze



Amazing things about Florence:

Our hotel. I could write pages singing its praises. But I'll stick with saying that there was breakfast in bed every morning, champagne when we arrived, and a welcome package with spaghetti and sauce!

Walking through the quiet backstreets and stumbling upon a wonderful little art shop selling beautiful dainty etchings that were being made as we browsed around. We bought two.

The food. Oh goodness, the food.

The fact that I was a little in awe of the place, and therefore didn't take all that many photos. Most of the time, I wanted to see it with my eyes rather than the lens.


To see a few Florence photos:

I wish we had known about your hotel..breakfast in bed just sounds devine. Where can you get that anymore?

Beautiful, as usual. Sometime you'll have to tell us about the food.
