Firenze is Always a Good Idea; Florence Day 1

Morning came fast and I felt I should be way more excited that we were about to go explore a new city. But I just did not want to leave Venice.

It definitely helped that we scoped it out the night before. And hubby even kept his promise. He lugged his suitcase and mine, up the few stairs we encountered.
