Zurich to Florence

Late last night we got on the night train to Florence. And despite what the brochures tell you, an overnight train in a 2-person sleeper coach is.not.great.But it got us here. And now we're onto churches, churches and more churches Frescos, frescos and more frescos And then there was my illegal photo of the man himself... It was even more amazing in person than in photos.A nice view of the Arno River And tourists, tourists, and more tourists. It's to the point of being oppressive. We're heading to Sienna tomorrow with the hopes that it'll be fewer throngs of tourists and more of the Italy we came to see.

I think it looks fab, but I hear what you are saying on twitter about the tourists. How good was that gelato?

Tsk Tsk tsk. I know about those guards at the Accademia. Great photo of David...and how did you get the dome picture? When we were there, there was a section roped off so you couldn't stand directly under the dome.

Now the most important question: did you have gelato at Vivoli?
