Enough of the countryside time to hit another city. Florence.

The final three days of my holiday where in this very busy, popular city. Florence is stunning, but very busy and full on. I had to have a squizz at the most beautiful man in the world, Michelangelo's David....not bad..not bad at all. It's really hard to be in the same room with him because everytime you try to turn away to look at something else or leave, you can't...your eyes are drawn to him, it's as if nothing or nobody else is in the room ...quite stunning.

More churches, more art galleries more stunning sights...and more running.

It rained in Florence but that was OK better than the heat I had expected, I ran and ran in Florence, I ran over the Ponte Vecchio, Florence's famous bridge, then along the Arno and climbed a huge hill to get to Michelangelo's Piazza which has a brilliant view of Florence, and a replica of the beautiful David, green with moss and covered in Pigeon Poo, the way statues are supposed to be, still stunning nonetheless!!

I then ran all the way back through the cobblestones..ouch.. until I found my hotel! I had run for over an hour and was so mesmerised with the sights didn't even realise I was running..distraction therapy..the best thing for running!

Then it was time to board a train to return to Venice and fly home. I had the most wonderful time and the running was different and fun. All runners should never leave town without their running shoes get to see so much when you go for a morning run in a new is the best way to see the sights.
