October 4, 2017-Florence Arrival

The flight from Atlanta to Amsterdam was more roomy and comfortable… Andrea is enjoying a movie.

We arrived in the late afternoon, settled in, and took a walk in the area of our hotel. Failing to find our way to the train station, Statione Santa Maria Novella, we decided to grab our dinner and take a taxi to the station in the morning .. a wise decision.

We passed this street artist on our walk near the hotel.

Piazza Repubblica with its lighted carousel was on our path.

Dining in the fresh air (al fresco) at Donnini’s, we shared a primo of ravioli and a secundo of margherita pizza. We enjoyed a nice glass of chianti classico.
