A few photos

Ah yes! Just a few!!!! We had the most fantastic time - flew to Rome, caught a train to Florence, stayed in a lovely little hotel quite close to the station, saw some fantastic art, great buildings, ate some delicious food and packed quite a lot into the three days we had there! 
This was our view from the bedroom window

I think this view while we were eating at the Uffizi made the food taste better!
We were told this church -S Miniato al Monte was the best in Florence - I have to agree - it was near to Piazalle Michaelangelo across the river with a lot of steps to climb.
We also had this great view......
although this is the one that most people enjoy too
We ate out in some unusual settings - the pizza was great but the decor was amazing

I just couldn't resist this - the guy had just gone in for his lunch!

I will be back with more photos but Saturday is Happy Stampers Day so it will be a lot later!
Thanks for looking, I'm looking forward to bit of a blog catch up too now we have some appointments out of the way! Chris

Oh Chris, your photos are fabulous! What a gorgeous place Florence is (sigh), I have never been, but would dearly love too.

I looked for you for ages inside and kept going into the big coffee lounge but could not find you. So sorry, I would loved to have had a chat. I met up with Rachel and Gwen and then Neet, all blog friends so I spent more time chatting than buying! Great for the old wallet. It was so busy..... next time we will have to plan! Look forward to seeing ore of your photos now. Hugs, Anne xx

Aaaahhhh... this post has made me happy. It's more than a quarter of a century since I was there, but Florence remains one of the cities I love most in the world - it helps that I was young and in love when I visited it, I guess! - but it really is the most beautiful place. Thank you for sharing these photos... looking forward to more!

Ah, thanks for this tour. I'm off to see more, now. But first, I wanted to thank you for these photos. I was in awe of the lighting that actually looked like a cut pizza (grin)!
