Here are just a few bits from our trip.
The symbol of Florence is the Fleur de lis, below in flowers. Apparently purple is the cities colour as well. As I said above, we decided to rent a car since it was myself, Adam, his sister Laura, my Mom and Nana, and all of our luggage. Our first stop was Venice, which you can’t even drive in, so the car was wasted for a few days. Then we drove from Venice to Florence. Was it a pretty drive? Yes. Was it stressful? Hell yes! Our Tom Tom kept leading us astray, everyone in the car had an opinion, and Adam who is used to driving on the left side of the road was driving on the right.
Long story short-take a train, it’s easier.
