Day Three of our trip in Italy was spent traveling from Venice to Florence. We took the vapparetto from our hotel just east of Piazza San Marco up the Grand Canal, past the Rialto Bridge to the train station. From there we purchased our first Trenitalia tickets (easy!) and eventually boarded an empty train to Firenze.
Once we reached Firenze we promptly got lost, double-tracked, walked against massive city traffic (quite a shock coming from Venice), and found our hotel. We can just say that we do not recommend the residence. The next day we decided to relax for a bit, but eventually got bored. We ended up visiting Palazzo Pitti and the fabulous, amazing, and beautiful Boboli Gardens.
I've posted another 38 photos, entirely from that time.
