A last lingering look along the Arno

Our last evening was spent strolling around Florence and eating. We couldn’t get enough of wandering through the streets in Italy, no matter where we were based. We went again to the Loggia dei Lanzi to have a closer look at the statues. I thought Giambologna's Rape of the Sabines was extraordinarily powerful and photographed it from all sides.

After more wandering, we discovered a little place called Trattoria la Burrasca, so in we went for supper. We had bruschetta, wine & water, an excellent lasagne and salad, and to top it off, a heavenly lemon sorbet served in a frozen hollowed out lemon half, with vodka poured on top. (All this for about €35 total for both of us.) Eventually we made our way back to the hotel, where Mom relaxed in a Jacuzzi bath, while I caught up on my journal and reading. I also called home to say hello to my hubby and daughters, who were very excited to hear about our trip thus far and that we would be home soon.
