Made it to Roma! Sorry, no pictures for now, since we're in an internet cafe on the Piazza Barberini. Florence was great, but crowded. We found ourselves among masses of tourists, who should have all gone back to work.
Yesterday, we went to mass in Il Duomo at 5:00pm, which happened to be an English speaking mass. On the way there, we observed a wine festival parade, celebrating the start of the grape harvest. Pictures to follow. Best deal of the weekend for us: We got in free to the Uffizi Gallery and the Pitti Palace/Boboli Gardens due to a special two day Art Festival. Times up, must upload.
