Monday, the 1st September, by train to Firenze.
Depart Torino Porta Susa at 13.25 by Frecciarossa FR9569 and arrive Firenze Santa Maria Novella at 16.10.
Our hotel for four nights was the Antica Torre, Via dei Tornabuoni 1, 50122 Firenze.

Three days were spent in Firenze since in addition to two days seeing the city we also wanted to visit Siena, San Gimignano and experience the Toscana countryside. The slideshow has a digitally recorded soundtrack. The harp music was recorded with the permission of the artist, it being her own composition in San Gimignano and the bells are those of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Firenze.
