The Boboli & Bardini GardensNovember 17, 2017 in Italy
Had thought to do a day trip to Siena but woke up feeling off so decided against it. Hopefully we didn't miss too much (or we'll just have to come back and go another time 😁).
Instead made it out for a late lunch of souvlaki - nice if a little salty. Then to Boboli and Bardini gardens (a few streets apart and one ticket will get you into both). Not super impressive as gardens go but was still nice just walking around in the sun (much warmer today - at times was tshirt weather). Great views from the top out over Florence. Cool statues but then we're not experts. Fort Belvedere was closed but would've been nice to see.
Skipped the porcelain museum but did see the Buonalenti grotto - pretty cool if quite random with all the effort put in to make it look like a real cave.
Got a Thai massage which we both needed and then grabbed some fresh bread and biscotti for tomorrow's breakfast and dinner for tonight (pasta, meatballs and eggplant - yum). Home to rest for our last full day in Florence.
Italy is playing Argentina (rugby) at the stadium here tomorrow but think we'll give it a miss - a shame the ABs don't happen to be playing here. Will see how we go!Read more
