Florence and Rome

all seasons in one day

26th  May 2015
Left Monterosso for Florence to travel by train. We arrived at the Monterosso station and as usual here we carried our luggage through the underground tunnel and up the stairs to the platform where there was a lot of people travelling.  There was some confusion about the trains and everyone was asked to move from platform 3 to 1. Once we all moved to platform 1 the guard asked us all to move to platform 2!!! Our train finally arrived on platform 2 about 20 mins late but it was ok because the connecting trains worked out ok.
Arrived in  Florence at 1pm and headed out for a local walking tour,  we only got to the first point and it poured with rain,  we didn't expect this and left our umbrellas at tge hotel so we left the tour and had lunch until it cleared.  Spent the rest of the day walking the streets of Florence!

Left Florence for Rome on the fast train.
Arrived in Rome and after checking into our hotel we walked Rome!  We walked to Trevi Fountain (which was under repair construction) Spanish Steps,  St Paul's Cathedral,  Ancient Ruins,  Coluseum etc. During the afternoon there was a thunderstorm and it poured,  we took shelter in a café and waited till it stopped.
