I am back in Florence this evening and start at a different school tomorrow.
I made a quick reconnaissance trip to locate the school. The hotel is quite close to the Ponte Vecchio and the school is quite close to Santa Croce, I have to walk right past the Palazzo Vecchio to get to school. All in all good locations. It will be a 10 minute walk.
One quick photo from the day. An example of how Florence differs from the Tuscan countryside.
BTW – it has been roasting hot in Italy. Tomorrow it will be 101 degrees, Tuesday a balmy 100! No relief in sight for the rest of the week, at least. Plus, the added heat factor of being in the city.
