Left Rome yesterday for Assissi and visited church of St Francis, quaint village before arriving in the beautiful Florence. Had visit to a monestry and four course dinner with monks waiting on us and providing the musical entertainment, wonderful evening, waltzed with a monk and they sure provide some lethal brews. Today did the usual Florentine things, Duomo, David, Ponte Vecchio, etc and found the same gold shop that I visited 20 years ago ( felt obliged to buy something, Walter is not going to be there in another 20 years and it is 18 ct) Visited the medieval walled hilltop town of San Guingninno (wrong spelling but I can't remember ) and perused the local Tuscan products, tastings etc. Still love this place as much as I did last time, BUT being here means our time is nearly over.
