As you can see from the pic, Florence was very rainy and surprisingly chilly when we arrived. We were even there for the earthquake! Despite the wet weather, we enjoyed our time there especially our wine tour, which is coming in a later post. I was excited for Florence because our hotel is conveniently located to a market with a large wine selection. It’s a little overwhelming because there is so much to choose from. They have a great selection of wines starting around 1.50 euro. The cheapest wines are in the individual boxes, but full size bottles start around 2.50 euro. The bottles I purchased were 2.69, 3.94, 7.14, and 15.58 euro for the Brunello, not a bad deal!
