J-term Trip 2018

Day 19: Florence

In the morning, we woke up and headed to the train station to head to Florence. The train ride was just over an hour and a half. Since it was an early train ride, some people used the time to catch up on sleep and rest. Others, used the time to work on the workbook. Once we arrived in Florence, our local guide met us, and we hopped on the bus to head to the hotel. Once we dropped our luggage at the hotel, we went on a walking tour of Florence. We saw a Baptistery and the cathedral of the Duomo. We also went to the museum of the Duomo which was really interesting to look at! After the tours, many of us climbed stairs to the top of the bell tower. The views from the top were amazing because we were able to see all of Florence! After we climbed the bell tower, we headed back to the hotel to get our room assignments and relax before dinner. We had a group diner that night at a restaurant right by the hotel.

P.S Happy 21st Birthday Zach!!
