Day 3 (Florence) Part III

Are you bored with my updates yet? :)

Anyway, this evening we did not do much, went to the Baptistry next to the dome and paid 10 Euros for 2 adults (child below 6 is free). The ceiling of the Baptistry was magnificent! Reese was fascinated by it. The ceiling was art was mosaic art and it depicts the stories in the bible. Next stop was the Pontevecchio again to see it at sunset but we missed it. So off we go to find another famous restaurant for dinner. Had to line up even being early! Dinner was delicious, Reese had ravioli in tomato sauce, I had trippa in tomato sauce (cow tripe) and hubby had beef stew in wine sauce.

Our hostess at the B&B was really lovely, gave Reese a box of chocolate biscuits and a bottle of Chianti wine as a gift for staying with them. They really like Reese! My boy was telling them about us, what he saw in Florence and even hold the hands of the hostess and insisted that she follow him to see the next sight. He is so innocent and sincere with every word he uttered. We can see that he is proud of where he came from and kept telling everyone that we come from Malaysia.

Today is going to be a long and tiring day. Our final day in Florence. We have booked a 1 day tour to the Tuscany region. We will be visiting Pisa, Sienna and San Gimignano.

2 lovely books for Reese. We bought it at the Uffizi gallery bookshop.
