Another day out... Today we caught the train and headed off for Certaldo Alto - seemed a relatively painless exercise but Florence station is large... the ticket machines take forever to produce the tickets - but did in the end... We inquired about our train and there it was :D
We walked up from the station which is in the 'new' town and headed for the funicolar - which was closed. But there was a 'shuttle' bus as an alternitve. slightly longer but an easy ride up to the top which was the old town.
It's a pretty town but, what we hadn't realised, was that most of the 'attractions' were shut on a Tuesday.... this may be because it's out of main tourist season.
Nonetheless we had a good wander...
Palazzo Pretorio - The Town Hall at the rear...
Fantastic views again..
The Church.. I believe its Santi Michele e Jacopo
The funicular - that seemed to be undergoing some repairs/maintenance.
seen in a garden... :)
and then down again to have a bite of lunch back in Florence and a wander around the city.
Another really great day......
