Wow busy day today! Got up quite early and bought some bread cheese and salami (oh and a cherry pie - very italian . . .) and headed off into florence. Dragged ed to the borgello gallery to see the sculptures (michelangelo, danti etc) Dantis beheading of john the baptist is simply stunning!!!
Then went on the train to pisa and wandered around and of course took in the famous landmarks, pisa was lovely to wander around, i think we have just about missed the owrst of the tourist crowds, AND I BROKE OUT THE SUNGLASSES FOR THE FIRSTR TIME! hjeehee was lovely
then headed onton siena which is very medieval in its architecture, wandered around the famous scallop shaped piazza and then baught some more bread and fruit from little local shops, then headed back to florence.
The train journeys are lovely, very scenic and the trains are never crowded
Going on to rome tomorrow!
love to all
