From our previous episode When in Rome, Italy trip EP.1 (https://th.readme.me/p/17612)
In this Ep. 2 I would like to take you to Florence , the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany for 1 day because after that we rented a car and did road trip to Tuscany that I will show you in the next episode.
Ok let's go. We took a train from Rome to Florence. You can buy the ticket at the auto machine in advance or before you go at the train station. I suggest you should have a look and buy advance ticket when you travel by train in Rome because it will easy for you to manage the schedule in your trip.
After 1.30 hrs on the train, we arrived at Florence, and our first meal is Chinese food because if you are Asians like us I think you cannot have pizza and spaghetti for every meals too.
Fried morning glory in Chinese Restaurant in Florence, Italy.
We booked Soggiorno Burchi, B&B in Florence to stay for 1 night. It's located on good location, we walked from train station to our accommodation only 10 mins.
There are rooms and share bathrooms. Cute room design and decor.
After we Checked in and keep our baggage, we explored Florence.
Florence is small city but charming with arts and architectures. You can take time only 1 day to explore around Florence, in case of you do not line up for queue to go inside Museum like us.
