On to Florence with love...

Bonjourno Italia

sunny 34 °C

We board our first class train to Florence from Macon. I am very excited as Florence is on my bucket list. I missed visiting it 20 years ago when I was backpacking as a train strike delayed my travel plans through Italy. So we arrive in Florence I call it the city of Angels because we are not 100% sure where to catch the bus to Fisole (the mountainside village we will be staying near). Rob goes into the station to ask someone and I ask a Florentine lady who only speaks italian but is very happy to tell be using body language that we need to take the #1 bus to the #7 bus and that she will be taking the same bus and will make sure we get were we need to go.... I love the Angels amoung us...Rob makes it back to me just in time for us to get on the bus and our Italian angel gives us a wink as we get off the bus at the right spot... ;)
Villa Fisole set in what is very similar to the Hollywood Hills of L.A. is absolutely beautiful. We check into our room decked out in 1940's Hollywood decor complete with pictures of Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth... Ubber Glam Chadeliers and old Hollywood vibe...We head to the pool as it is so hot outside (35+C) The pool is refreshing...
They told us at check in that they are having a set menu dinner tonight in the dinning room. We decide to go and are seated at the only table with a view of the Duomo :) smile.
Dinner was delish then off to bed.
