Summer Storms and Sunshine in Florence.

Our first day in Florence brought us much adventure and to the top of Piazzale Michelangelo and the San Miniato al Monte Church! Swiftly avoiding the short rain showers, and taking in the sunshine when it appeared, we had an amazing afternoon in San Niccolo.
