Last day in Venice (sigh). Had another delightful breakfast and gave Christian a hug as we headed for the train station in a water taxi. No way were we going to lug an additional suitcase over that bridge again. As we left this beautiful city, we had to get one last shot.

First class accommodations to Florence on the Eurostar, peaceful and uneventful train ride. Arrived back to the hustle and bustle of Florence and checked into our Five-Star Hotel, The Grand Medici. Yimminey Crickets, this place was nice. A phone in the WC, robes, and CNN on the tube. We were set.

A nice dinner of Florentine steak at a local steakhouse and we were beat. Resigned to leaving Italy, we hit the sack.
