View from outside our apartment in Florence

After our mishap in London, we finally made it to Florence via Pisa. Pisa airport was great with the train right by the station. It was cheap to go from Pisa to Florence on the Regional train. We also had heard horror stories about gypsies in Florence, though the whole time there we didn’t encounter any problems. It may be due to an effort to clean up the city, but who knows. We ended up finding a great deal for an apartment in Florence 2 blocks from the duomo. As you can see, you can literally see it from outside the apartment window. The apartment was super spacious and could easily fit 5 people. It was situated above a great shoe store and Giuseppi, the shoe store and apartment owner, was great and helped us out when needed.
