The hot air balloon trip which originated with a pick-up in Rome was a peak life experience. The David was the most incredible piece of artwork I have ever seen.
We ended up staying in Florence for a few extra days just to attempt to take it all in. The food was delicious and it is a beautiful city rich in art and history.
Don't try to drive! The narrow streets, confusing road rules and the motor scooters make it very difficult. The transit system and cabs make getting around very easy. If you see only one thing see the David.
Best Way To Get Around:
We did a lot of walking and took cabs. We did use the bus some but mostly relied on cabs.
