Venice to Florence

Up early, breakfast and on to the train station to catch our train to Florence. The train ride was uneventful, smooth and pretty. Very different views as we came into the Tuscany region. Once we got to the Florence station we had to find out how to get to our apartment. As it turns out, it was all of 100 meters from the train station. It turns out this is a great location, close to everything. Less than an kilometre […]

This morning we ate breakfast at the hotel, contennial┬ástyle which was included with our room. Vance and Vangie were up eariler than us so had eaten by the time we go there but sat and had another coffee while we fuelled up. The result of Vance and Vangie being up before us was that they had gone exploring the area around our hotel. So when we left, they new exactly where to go to get our bus/vaporetto tickets. (A vaporetto […]
