Firenze (Florence)

Touristville

sunny 28 °C

Dear All
Had a wonderful start to the day. Got a beautiful gold chain bracelet for my birthday from Ron. It is truly stunning and I love it. All the fellow travellers wished me a happy birthday and they all continued to make my day just that little bit special.
Went to Firenze and looked at the frescoes in the Carmine Vecchio. These were all painted around the 15th century and provided a bit of a "map" as to how the methods of painting changed over a period of about 150 years and the beginning of the Renaissance. Also went to Piazza San Giovanni were a copy of David is along with numerous other sculptures. Some beautiful, some gruesome.
Walked along to the Ponto Vechio and did a heap of window shopping. Everything there was about triple the price of goods a few streets away but just had to do the touristy thing and be there.
Had a wonderful evening. All the crew finished off the day with lots of good wishes for my birthday. Really fantastic.

Catcha all later. We,ll be home soon and I must say, I,m beginning to think it,s almost time to come home too. Nothing like home.

Ciao Ciao
