We arrived at Livorno, the port city just outside of Florence. Our tou group travelled by bus to the City of Florence and enjoyed the beautiful countryside leading to Florence. While in Florence we learned much about Florences role in the Renaissance, the art, the architecture, the language, and the desire to enjoy life. In Florence we saw the Cathedral, beautiful art and sculptures, and the famous leaning tower of Pisa. We enjoyed shopping too. Florence is a beautiful place, we have to go back and really enjoy the bridges, the canals, the art, and the lovely Florentine Cafes.
