This was our travel day to Florence. We took the train from Termini Station in Rome to Florence which was only about a 1 1/2 hour train ride.
Once we checked into our hotel, we did a little sight-seeing. Our hotel was right near the Duomo, which is in the heart of Florence.
We stopped for some lunch.
Jake tried a seafood pizza.
We took a stroll through the market.
And stopped in some little shops.
And had some more gelatto.
The Piazza della Signoria
Palazzo Vecchio is one of the city's grandest palaces.
This window caught my eye every time we walked by it. :)
Back at our hotel rooms. Nothing fancy here, but the rooms were huge and the bathroom was very updated. We rested a bit before heading out for dinner.
This picture of Jake at dinner made me laugh. :)
This was one of my favorite meals and one I will always remember. The food was amazing-- with the best bruschetta!
And the views were just breathtaking. Out table was out on the Piazza overlooking Palazzo Vecchio!
The best gnocchi I have ever had! Mmmmm!
A great day in Florence!
