Andiamo a Firenze

Zoe (16), Marina, (45) from Russia who lives in London, and I took the bus and the train to Florence yesterday afternoon. Zoe has never been. Our apartment is one block from San Lorenzo and one block from Mercato Centrale on the third, which is really the fourth floor.  We each have our own bed, although Marina is up in the loft. We got a great last-minute deal with a superhost on Airbnb. Last night we had dinner at Trattoria Zaza, Caroline’s favorite spot from 2010, and then walked past the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, the Ponte Vecchio, and all the way over to Piazza del San Spiritu. Lots of people out on a Friday night, which was an immediate shock after the tranquility of Montepulciano. Troppi turisti ma bel’ arte! 

Zoe’s first glimpse of the Duomo!

    What a wonderful experience for the three of you–once again–how lucky is Zoe to have met you and been able to travel with you. You have clearly made some wonderful new friends during this trip, and I can see why people are drawn to you and your adventurous and happy spirit! I want to travel with you sometime…………..
