Had to get up at 4:30 to get to the airport in time for 8 o’clock flight
I know you get what you pay for but I would be willing to pay a bit more just so Ryan Air could afford a better tanoy system!
Got the bus from Pisa airport to Florence which took about an hour and a half.
Checked into the hotel and changed into shorts as the weather here is soo warm.
Wandered round for a bit and had some lunch in Plazza della Signoria
Had an ok capriciosa pizza – the toping was fine but the base was a little under cooked. Sadly I don’t think they had a proper pizza oven.
Walked round the Duomo area then went up to the Cuppola it takes a while and the stairs are pretty steep but the view is well worth the effort.
Walking round the circumference you realize quite how huge an achievment it was for Brunelleschi (obviously not on his own!) to build it in 1418
( over 100 years after work on the cathedral was started)
