It would not be surprised if a lot of restaurants to place drinks that do not put up the price, but when we can pay contrived upset! Because the system is mostly Italian restaurants in the service have not been included in the price of food.
There is an additional fee, rental of forks, knives, plates, cups, spoons in the bill. Fortunately, there are some restaurants, which clearly write on the blackboard outside the restaurant, if the service and rentals are included in the price of food. Because there is no write and then suddenly … money spent so very expensive! Because it is a famous tourist city that took so many commercial opportunities.
The main tourist destination in Italy
The first day we were in this city, we plan to walk leisurely. Looking through the city, old buildings, visit the Church of Santa Maria del Fiore and of course climb the tower of the Campanile Giotto, who reportedly has 502 stairs.
At 10 am, we were in the town square called piazza del Duomo. And the large square is already crowded by the tourists!
Santa Maria del Fiore’s church is the fourth largest church in Europe. Built in stages, the initial construction began in 1296 and ended in 1412. Building places of worship are arguably more towards building this tour, has a floor and roof with beautiful mosaics and paintings and fascinating. All the tourists busy with their cameras and photo equipment. Capture every beauty presented in the old building.
Out of the church, we went straight to Giotto Campanile tower. The tower from above can see the whole city of Florence has a staircase of about 500. The stairs of stone, spinning and narrow is not easy to ride. Especially when we go up, usually visitors who come down to make one of us should stop and against the wall.
Hundreds of stairs that took us to our feet and rising, paid once a panoramic view that lay like a carpet with a painting of a city. The dome of the church that seemed so far away from the eye when we were in the square, is being so close. Large building small, short height unfolds in the view of a miniature.
Olala … worth it, Florence is the heart of art history … hopefully these at least four nights, could uncover its beauty.
