After walking through my favorite square - Santa Croce - and taking some photos of the city, I made my way across the Arno River and stopped in at a small market in the Oltrarno (which means beyond the Arno - or across the river) for some snacks and of course some delicious Moretti beer - Italy's best. I climbed the hill to the piazza and walked around the souvenir vendors and tourists.
Chad joined me and after a full day on my own, I was actually excited to see him! He had picked up picnic fare as well. We had a great picnic, while watching the sun set over Florence.
(C) This was romance served in a tiny plastic cooler. I didn't even know if you would be there. The meeting time was, with all due patience expected, "five o'clock if you're going to show up. I'm leaving at 5:30." I was there at 5pm with a bottle of some country chianti I picked up at a shop between Santa Croce and the Piazza della Signoria. Along with some bread, cheese and pepperoni, we had a feast on the steps and made all the other tourists super jealous who had come on buses and didn't plan with such Florentine spontenaiety.
