Day 1: We got into Florence at 7pm and made our way to the hotel before heading out to dinner at Mamma Napoli which was traditional Naple tucker. Florence seems to be made up of hundreds of narrow streets and there's tough restrictions on cars driving in town so it's nice and quiet (except for the hoards of tourists during the day). We shared pasta, pizza and some Tiramisu and then headed home for an early night.
Day 2: Next morning we run along the Fiume Arno and then headed to the Uffizi Gallery which was full of old statues and amazing paintings. After the gallery we queued for a local panini (probably should've got the small rather than the large) and beer and then went shopping in town. We then headed home to relax for a couple of hours before walking to dinner across the river. On the way we walked past a replica of the David statue and the cathedral while enjoying a cheeky beer. After this we took a bus up to Piazzale Michelangelo for a spectacular view over the city.
Day 3: The plan was to head to Pisa today but unfortunately all the trains were getting cancelled due to strikes. So instead we wandered the streets, did a little shopping and had some wine and panini's in the third park we came across (the first two were locked up or cost €10 to get in). Time to pick the car and Greta up from the airport and head to wine country!
Day 4: Once we arrived to Florence we stopped at the Piazzale Michelangelo to show Greta and see Florence in the daylight and then headed to our accommodation before dropping the car off. We then headed out for a cheeky run before meeting up with Imogene for pizza, a few wines, followed with a wee explore in the nightlife area. The next day we went shopping in the leather market, got Florence's best panini for a third time and then relaxed in the park before our train to Zermatt!!
