A day off!
Our original plan for Florence had included a bus tour of Chianti orgnaized by the tourism bureau but alas that got cancelled this year... so what to do with our extra day? The other bus tours didn`t really interest us. Perhaps a side trip to Siena or Lucca? Very tempting indeed. On the other hand, just a hop, skip and a jump away is a little town/suburb called Fiesole which overlooks Florence from the Tuscan hills. So we jumped on the city bus and off we went!
What a gorgeous place! Quaint little church, spectacular views and we had our main meal at a wonderful little cafe on the main square. The bistecca alla fiorentina is the specialty around these parts but at €55 a kilo (1.1 or 1.2 kg serving) we passed on that! We had an avocado and shrimp salad, Rod had the grilled lamb, I had the most tender chicken and we shared some grilled veggies. Very, very good! All with a mezzo litro of red wine (the first wine I've had in almost a week -- and no nausea, woohoo!)
Rod is off now on a solo excursion around town while I rest my tootsies -- a little break from all this "togetherness"! LOL
