    Road to rome

    June 5, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Left Venice in a water taxi to get back on our bus. Our bus driver’s name is Enrico and Phil praises him for being such a good driver and they work well together. Stopped at a rest Centre and took a picture for Ron of a cow and what we thought said Drink milk but said milk the cow...we ask Enrico. Then to Pisa. Much more to it than we thought. We had a local guide who was very humorous. Apparently people from Pisa did not like the Venetian or the Romans. Men selling cheap souvenirs mainly outside the walls. Phil said to watch for pickpockets. We stopped at Machiavella winery. He wrote The Prince away back when?Lots of wine tasting and some snacks....the view is from the winery. Arrived at hotel around 6 o’clock. A group of us tried to find a restaurant but ended up coming back to hotel....a very funky hotel. Little lights in ceiling and walls of bed part of room. Remember the coloured bathroom fixtures??Read more

    Road to Rome

    June 6, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    I missed a walking tour of Florence this morning. Had a very sore throat, which is much better now, and dropped my IPad on my bad toe and it was sore too. At 3 o’clock we left for San Gimignano, medieval towers from the Middle Ages on a hill in Tuscany. It is a UNESCO heritage sight. We got out of bus on way up and countryside was amazing. Had a gelato and shopped. Drove to an eating place and had the best group meal so far....deep fried olives, bruschetta, tapenade on bread, ravioli, and then brought in on a huge tray, big roast of beef. Lots of merriment ensued as there was bottles of different wines on table and they brought beer if one wanted it. We sang in bus on way home and acted like a bunch of teenagers. Enrico drove bus around traffic circle 3 times as we were singing. A couple of young girls 20 or 21 are on the bus. One is with her parents and her friend came with her. Very attractive and pleasant. The danced in the aisle to ABBA’s Dancing Queen!Read more

    Musical oligarch

    If you thought that the Russian mafia have only recently discovered Tuscania, here is evidence that they came with staves long ago. Perhaps it is just a side note to history, but I suspect they acted in concert.Read more

    2.Tag Florenz

    October 22, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌬 15 °C

    Bologna erstrahlte am Morgen im schönen Herbstton und wir gingen noch vor der Abfahrt nach Florenz kurz durch die Innenstadt. Mit dem IC ging es um 11:18 Uhr dann in knapp einer Stunde nach Florenz. Vom Bahnhof Rifredi ging es noch 30 Minuten mit der Tram weiter zum Florence Comfort B&B. Hinter einer Mauer versteckt erwartete uns ein Haus mit 6 Zimmern und unseres mit Balkon und Whirlpool. Zu Fuß am Arno bzw. im Arno (der Pegel ist sehr niedrig) ging es Richtung Zentrum. Ähnlich wie in Rom gibt es an jeder Ecke was zu sehen. Der Dom überragt natürlich alles und die Schlange am Eingang den gesamten Platz. Durch Zufall fanden wir eine Kirche mit Museum im oberen Stock und herrlichen Blick auf den Dom und das alles ohne Anstehen und Eintritt. Unterwegs habs Eis, Cappuccino und Salami-Käse Platte sowie Pizza zum Abschluss. Der Tag endete in der Sauna und im Whirlpool.Read more
