First Day –Florence
27 August 2015
Buona sera from Florence!
Checked in to the lovely Savoy Hotel on Piazza della Repubblica. Fighting jet lag and yes, Dear Readers a head cold, we headed out for a birthday drink an dinner to rooftop SE-STO atop of the Westin overlooking the lovely Arno River– amazing views. There we had Negroni and Prosecco toasts to being here in Italia (and my 54th year on this crazy earth).
We then headed across the Arno River one bridge down from Ponte Vecchieo on to a lovely little restorante il Santo Bevitore where we had an amazing meal of Zuchinni Flan with Shrimp, Burrata with freshest little Tomatoes and Grilled Ocotopus on a bed of risotto.
Bella bella bella!
We’re off to breakfast soon and then a 3 hour walking tour. Stay tuned, we’re just getting started.
Ciao for now.
