Our last day in Florence...
Here is the hotel from the movie "A Room With A View".
When we asked if they had any availability we were told they are booked until September!
Luckily a fancy hotel isn't necessary to find a great view in Florence...
The Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge)
The Fountain of Neptune in Piazza della Signoria which was commissioned on the occasion of the wedding of Francesco I de' Medici to grand duchess Johanna of Austria in 1565.
The Arno River flowing beneath the bridges of Florence:
Outside of the Duomo
Also known as the Cathedral in Pajamas because of its colorful gothic revival facade added in the 1800s.
Giotto’s Campanile (bell tower)
One of Charlie's favorite sculptures, Benvenuto Cellini's, "Perseus With the Head of Medusa"
And finally a $30 t-shirt that Charlie decided to pose with in lieu of purchasing.
