Day 6: PISA - FLORENCE
We were lucky yesterday and we were able to book a room at the Hotel Milano, one of the very few that was left with places at a reasonable price. So after all we can't complain too much.
The first thing we do is get the train tickets from Pisa to Florence for 15.80 euros both and we will have breakfast at the same Central Station in Pisa.
Our train from Pisa to Florence departs at 9.12 in the morning and takes 45 minutes to reach the Florence Santa Maria Novella Station.
We have been lucky to choose this train, because the rest of the schedules, cost the same and take an hour, so today we can say that we also have 15 extra minutes.
The day has dawned raining and stormy, something that has made us look weird from the window of our hotel in Pisa, but as soon as we go out there is a sun that announces that we will have 2 perfect extra days.
At 9.12 we promptly take our train from Pisa to Florence and we arrive at our destination at 10.15 in the morning and we go directly to our hotel in the Plaza San Lorenzo and after a few minutes walking through the streets of Florence, we have the incredible views of Santa Maria Novella and the Duomo of Florence.
We arrive at the hotel in a few minutes and when we enter, after reviewing our reservation they tell us that they have not received the email from Booking, but that they can give us a room in the same conditions only 5 minutes away and that the Hotel Basilea, which is closer to the Santa María Novella Station.
As all we want is to settle in and go out to enjoy Florence, we don't argue, we take the address and there we go.
We have to say that as soon as we arrive at the hotel, the atmosphere does not excite us much, but we do not pay much attention, we check in and when we look at the door we see that it is raining in seas.
We can not believe it ourselves. We just arrived in Florence and it rains? Having seen it, we have to wait at the reception for a while until it a little bit.
And so we get at 12 in the morning when we finally set out to tour this amazing city that we met several years ago.
We leave ready to eat the city and the first stop is in Florence Central Market, a place where the senses are sharpened to the fullest and where we enjoy an explosion of senses.
A good option to not miss anything about the city and learn more about its history is to book a guided tour in Spanish that includes the entrance to the Uffizi Gallery and the Skip-the-Line Academy Gallery or this Free Florence tour. Free!
