Florence and Assisi

Two "local" shots of Florence. Most people used bicycles or motorbikes in the narrow streets. So the 'parking issues' were not the same as other cities!
Came out one morning to find the Firenze marathon was in full swing with a good contingent of locals cheering them on.

When I realised that I could get to Assisi en route to Rome, I booked the trains that way. Luckily there is a shop where you can leave your packs as 'left luggage'.
Assisi was very beautiful, set up on a hillside. These two shots were taken on a walk up the hill. I loved looking down below through this belltower on a little church. And at the top there were definite signs of a storm brewing.
