Villa Petrolo

Rest Time

sunny 25 °C

Dear All
Well the end of the trip is nearly here and we,ve had a wonderful time. We are staying on at the Villa tonight then go by train down to Rome tomorrow morning. That way, there,s not a last minute rush to get to the airport on time as we,ll already be in Rome.
Fantastic time, fantastic scenary and a wonderful crew to holiday with.
So will see you all after next Thursday.
I,ll keep checking the blog and emails just in case.
Ciao Ciao

Firenze

The return journey

sunny 28 °C

Dear All
We went back to Florence yesterday mainly to see the "real" David at the Academia. Simply awesome is the only word I could use to describe the sculpture and it stands 4.1 metres tall. It took Michelangelo 3 years to sculpt and the work and detail is simply stunning.
After that we split off from the rest of the group and wandered around the sights and sounds of Florence, looking at all the pretty baubles in the windows of the Jewellers at the Ponta Vecchio (hideously overpriced) and leather merchants. The leather jackets are so soft and not necessarily all that expensive.
Even though we took it fairly easy, it might not have been easy enough as I became rather ill that night. If anything, I think it was my body telling me "enough", so we are both having an easy day back at the Villa whilst all the rest of the crew have gone to Assisi.
Friday is an easy day at home as well packing bags and last minute preparations for our departure early Saturday morning for Rome.
Take care all.

Ciao Ciao
