A flirt with Florence


Just about found the Sosta (motorhome camping) .. €20 per night and free wifi … Just another carpark for campervans .. With locked gates at night … Very cosy … Packed solid with few spaces left at €20 a day 35 vans in now .. Sounds like a very profitable outfit ….Arrived early to get a space .. Bought our bus tickets and off we went … I walked and walked .. Lovely Palazzos and churches …and the Ponte Vecchio… all places seen in photos .. What we didn’t know was how hard pavement walking is .. The chaotic traffic and more so Japanese tourists … Scooters and buses in streets never made for motorised transport … No wider than one bus width but with bikes scooters and walkers all trying for a slot in the system …
A rubbish Pizza lunch in Piazza della Signoria with staff just not interested in the clientel as they won’t have to see em again ..
Bus back to rest very tired feet
