Location: Florence, Italy

MapBonjorno everyone,
i'm in Italy at moment. Just spent the first five days of my Contiki
tour in France. Paris was absolutely amazing. Went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, saw all the famous sights, went out to dinner had some snails (sorry Fraser) and then to a Cabaret. After 2 nights in Paris we drove to a Chateau down in Lyon, down the south of France for some wine tasting. Went for a huge walk up to the top of a mountain and saw 360° views of the wine region. Had a 80's theme party one night and did a little bit of resting beforehand as it was raining. The Frence food was great too, lots of baguettes and cheese.

On Tues we left for Monaco, stopped off at Cannes beautiful beach
holiday place with great shopping. We stayed that night in Antibes went to the Monte Carlo grand casino bought myself a $20 cocktail instead of gambling. Monte Carlo was amazing the views from top of mountain where Prince Albert lives were incredible.

We arrived in Florence yesterday, went to leaning tower of Pisa took some cool shots then off to campsite. this is the best accomodation so far. we went out to a bar last night and had a huge night......went and saw sights of Florence today, statue of David, had my first authentic Gelati, very yummy. we are going out for a tuscan dinner tonight then off to a night club. my time is running out on net so have to go but will try to write more
