In the morning, as a group, we did a walking tour of Florence.
Our first stop was the Duomo but we did not take the time to climb its heights.
Next stop was Dante's house.
The next stop on the tour was the Palazzo Vecchio with its magnificent statuary.
The irony was that as I walked around I decided I had to see this old Roman ruin only to discover it was the Roman ruin right in front of our hotel. The good news is I could use the bathroom in my room. Below there are two views from our hotel restaurant's window.
That night, after dinner, we walked the streets of Florence again, mining its richness on our last night there.
Florence has left the building.
