On the first day, after long and tiring coach/plane journeys, we eventually arrived in Florence. Florence is home to one of the most architecturally renoun and outstanding buildings in history: The Duomo, and we had a view of it, right from our luxury 2 star hotel ;)
Following our arrival we were given plenty of free time to localise ourselves with the surrounding area and get some good snaps. All i can say is that during the few hours of free time, i was truly amazed at the beauty of florence, the atmosphere was brilliant and all of the buildings had their own character to them.
Following our free time, we simply just unpacked and relaxed in the hotel for a few hours, before going out for the evening meal. Obviously pasta was for dinner and it was delicious, miles above the pasta here in england! So all in all it was a good first day, and to top it off we had some more free time after the meal for a drink. Well, while wandering around we managed to find a shop which sold Duff beer. I obviously had to buy 3 purely for the novelty, and after drinking them while walking we found a brilliant little cafe/bar. We decided to stop just for a drink and to chillout, soaking up the atmosphere, and there were 7 of us so we were giving the cafe good business. After each buying a drink or too, the barman came to our table outside with a tray, with a vodka shot each, completely free! What a perfect way to top off the day :D
p.s. also, i am sorry but i've yet to edit those 3 photos, but im sure you can enjoy them nonetheless.
