How do you feel about steps?
Of course, it does rather depend what you’re climbing to see? The views of Florence are magnificent, but I have good news for you. The number 13 bus will take you up to Piazzale Michelangelo. So, no need to worry for your September visit, Gilly. I think you’ll love it!
Should you be really ambitious (or foolhardy!) there are more steps on offer, to take you up to San Miniato al Monte.
I had hoped to time my arrival for evensong and the attendant Gregorian chant, but my plans were a little awry that day. The beautiful and unexpected cemetery was some compensation, and the church had a wonderful aura.
The way back down was more gentle, through lush greenery, and lead me past the tower of Porta San Niccolo, originally part of the city walls.
I apologise if you’re bored with my current obsession with Firenze, but I’m afraid there’s much more to come. I haven’t even touched on the Uffizi or Palazzo Vecchio yet. Can you guess where our Monday walk takes us?
Have a great weekend, won’t you, and hopefully join Cate with your six words?
