Lindy and I left our hotel and Rome the morning for good. We are now on our way to Florence on the Euro Star train. “Stan” is written a lot on the walls as Graffiti.
- We miss Bristol L
Things we will be doing today in Florence.
- The “Dumo” – main Cathedral
- The Baptistery
- Basilica di Santa Corce
- Tomb of Michelangelo and Galileo
The church that stored the remains of Galileo and Michelangelo was under partial restoration but we were still able to see the tombs. We are currently waiting for our train in Florence to Bologna.
- Train to Bologna was delayed about an hour because of a collapsed ceiling on the car
- We went to the main square here and checked out the church that was never truly finished.
Today we hopped onto a morning train to Florence. We made it for lunch and had some pizza and headed to the Santa Croce Basilica because Derek wanted to see Galileo and Michelangelo’s tomb which was there. They were both neat to see but a lot of the church was behind scaffolding so we couldn’t see the main alter.
