Florence · Italy

Ribollita

Just about to wind down our first evening in Florence.

We arrived a few minutes late by train and didn’t see much of the Tuscan countryside on the 45 minute journey–too many tunnels. But the few glimpses we had were gorgeous.

This view from our third floor B&B is great. We’ve been given third-floor rooms throughout the trip so far, and we’re not complaining.

After an hour wandering aimlessly, and having crossed the famous medieval stone bridge, Pont Vecchio, both ways we found a lovely little restaurant. Our meals were typically Tuscan, and we had our first taste of ribollita soup, seasonal vegetables and bread–it was excellent.

The temperature is cooling down a bit, glad of that. And here’s the evening view from our window to say goodnight.
