We made it to florence - our second last destination and were greated with airconditioned hotel - much beter than our venice experience - if there wasn't so much to see we would have been happy spending time there. But the sights were amazing. The views were remarkable - and could not want a better city to be spending time in. However the line to see *David* was too much for us - so we went on our merry way and saw Ponte Vechio etc.
Took a tour to Pisa as well to see the tower (greatest architectural stuff up ever) and that was a relaxing way to end our time in Florence (as well as seeing some of the Tuscan countryside).
Ice-cream is a stable diet here - it is sooooo good.
Have now arrived in final destination - ROMA.
So much to do and see if you can gain the energy in this heat.
So far we have seen the Colusseum, Pantheon, Piazza Venieza, Spanish Steps, Campo Fiori, and the ruins of ancient rome.
As we only have 3 sleeps left before our trip ends - we want to see as much as we can - but are getting very tired.
Rome is very hot - and fawlty towers does not believe in air con that works - on the positive we do have a small fan that we need to keep on all night because there is no such thing as a cool breeze during the night.
We have discovered living on alcohol is much cheaper than most other fluids.
(Not sure that is a good thing). Pace in Rome is much faster than Venice and florence.
