Well what a day this has been.
We were up early, had a quick breakfast and off to catch our first train – the 8:00am from Interlaken Ost to Spietz.
From Spietz we boarded the 8:36am to Brig; from Brig we boarded the 9:44am to Milano and then we caught the 12:20pm from Milano to Florence – arriving in Florence at 2:00pm.
It was 36ºC in Florence and let me tell you it was very hot!!
We found the local tourist information centre and collected some maps to orientate ourselves.
We then took a taxi to the apartment we had booked in a town called Signa about half an hour out of Florence.
We arrived in Signa around 4:00pm. We were told most places close (certainly in the smaller towns) from around 2:00pm until 4:00pm (or a little longer) especially in the summer reopening again from 4:00pm onwards.
After we arrived we decided to take a walk but it was hot, nothing much was open and the map we were using was not to scale!! So we came back to the apartment and decided to cool down and unwind and have a look at what we will do tomorrow.
So this is a short post tonight and guess what? I took very photos today (only a few on the train) so I will not be includng any in this post.
So short and sweet. Will check in again tomorrow.
Bye for now. Wendy
