It took about 45 minutes for the entire process. The boat ride itself was very short. Today is Republic day, similar to July 4th, but I don't think it is celebrated the same.
The town is beautiful as you come in from the sea. Yellow, orange and cream homes with the terra cotta tile roofs. There are slight sprinkles today and the high will be 71. Our tour driver was there waiting for us, with a large Mercedes van. Very nice car with lots of leg room and my fellow passengers are taking naps.
Florence itself is more modern, than the surrounding area. We are getting ready to see the David, I am very excited!
