Day 6 – Beautiful Tuscany here we come

Up early, traipsing through the streets of Florence with our luggage to drop it off at what was supposed to be our hotel for the whole stay lol.  I’m just sooking, it was not that big of a deal in the end and we really liked our intended hotel.  It is inside quite an iconic […]
