Day Ten: Rome to Florence, Italy

When people have asked me where all I'm headed. "Florence" is the city they seemed to have loved the most from the list on their past visits. I had great hopes for today! We are leaving Rome and driving down the Highway of the Sun to Florence. We have another walking tour which includes the Piazza Santa Croce; the Piazza Signoria, the Palazzo Vecchio and its courtyard, the Loggia dei Lanzi, the Piazza del Duomo and its cathedral with the Giotto Campanile, and the East Door of the Baptistry known as the “Gate of Paradise.” ...and maybe, more pizza, and gilatos?!?
