Firenze

Easy arrival at Hotel Grand Cavour in central Florence. Dennis and I set off on immediate exploration of surroundings to the river and Ponte Vecchio, where the lighting was excellent.

A super dinner at a small trattoria that I thought looked appealing, and coincidentally Sandy had read about in her guide. Had we arrived 30 minutes later, a table would have been impossible to have.

We planned on taking a free walking tour of the city, but with inclement weather forecast, we took bus #12 from the station up to Piazzale Michaelangelo to see these terrific views of the city that I remember from 40 odd years ago!
