The Italian Job 1

Thinking about holiday options, Kevin and I decided to go to Florence and Venice in February, and we used Franky Polaine to help get us booked up to visit in June.

We said our goodbyes and arrived in Florence at about 2pm, although we were delayed because a certain Mr Trump flew into Stansted!

We unpacked and made our way into the city to get our bearings for our walking tour the next day.

We changed for dinner at a recommended restaurant and enjoyed the food and wine!

Day 2 and the breakfast was plentiful and the view awesome. We met Leo our tour guide and he provided so much information, apparently the teenage mutant ninja turtles were big in Florence!

I’d booked La Traviata for that night and dinner. The opera was fab, the food not to my taste at all!

Day 3 and we were to visit the Duomo-breathtaking in more ways than one!

436 steps, I believe,to the top. Legs like jelly, but a challenge for me which I’m so glad I did it.

Dinner that evening was with a work colleague of Kevin’s and his wife. Food was exceptional! Company interesting and I learnt a lot about MotoGP racing.

Our last day comprised of a museum trip and another 400+ steps up the bell tower!

We had a table booked at the restaurant which was on the roof terrace and what a treat that was. The sunset, the food, wine and company made for one of the most romantic evenings ever. 💕

We packed ready for our next adventure – Venice. I’d booked the train so another experience to look forward to.
