We left beautiful Cinque Terre and took the train from Riomaggiore to Florence. We had been to Florence in 1990 with friends, however we were looking forward to seeing this city again. Florence was going to be our home base for doing some side trips to the vineyards of Tuscany ❤️🍷
We stayed in an apartment right next to the Duomo, Florence’s Cathedral. It was a great location and had a good size grocery store just around the corner. Since this was a high tourist area it was a bit noisy for part of the evening especially with the windows open. However the bedroom was in the back so there was no issue sleeping. It was one of the apartments in this Duomo guesthouse.
