Kel&Cez’s Travel Diary

Location: Florence, Italy

MapHappy Valentine's Day from Firenze!

Well, Kel and I have had an interesting time of it here. We managed to pick a fantastic location in between the Duomo/Campanile/Baptistry and the Uffizi and although the hotel room was beautiful, it reeked of rank, wet carpet. After a bit of a kafuffle with management and some remark about me being escorted from the premises by police, we managed to change rooms (just as nice and without the smell) AND get a discount!

Other highlights included:
- hiring bikes and cycling around on what was one of the most glorious days on our trip! The bikes made it so much easier to get around and we managed to fit into one day what would easily have taken a minimum of 2 days.
- Seeing/visiting such sights and attractions as the Ponte Vecchio, Duomo/Campanile/Baptistry, Piazzale Michelangelo, the Uffizi gallery, Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria (where all the statues are) and of course, the Accademia Gallery which houses Michelangelo's famed "David".

Well we're just about to jump on the train for Bologna where we're hoping to see a portico or two!

More installments soon, Fokker out.

Carey and Kelly xoxo.
