Europe day 4: Florence to Rome

We got up early and went to the museum where Michelangelo's David is located. Really amazing. All that work and dedication with limited tools.

Then we explored Florence a bit--vivoli, ponte vecchio... But we got out as soon as we could! It was SWARMING with tour groups and tourists. I don't think I've ever seen it so bad.

The highlight was definitely Montepulciano. It wasn't something we planned and our stop was less than 2 hours, but we had such a memorable time. We saw a bit of real Tuscan life and got to slow down and enjoy it! The views from that hilltop town were unbelievable. We will have to go back there some day.

After getting lost and not understanding Rome airport norms... We returned the car. From the airport we took a train to the central terminal which was less than .2 miles away from our hotel. The hotel is really amazing (considering our budget). Most importantly, it has air conditioning!

Tonight we walked down to the colosseum and roman forum area.
