Day 60 – Firenza to Fornovo Di Taro – 27kms


Leaving the wonderful Hotel Astoria this morning. How lovely it was last night to enjoy our bottle of Proscecco while watching the men’s singles finals at the French Open on BBC. So sorry Andy Murray lost.


The Municipal buildings.


Our pilgrim accommodation here tonight would best be described as indoor camping!!! We have beds, a bathroom door which disengages from its architrave, no toilet paper, a kitchen with a working fridge and freezer, a sink with hot water, no microwave and the gas to the stove has been turned off so no cooking is possible. Oh dear – seems like it’s just another night at a trattoria with pasta or pizza!!! And lots of wine of course!!!..


Meet Brisbane Tom. He’s on a 12 month exchange at Glasgow University from. QUT, Brisbane, QLD. Tom is sharing our pilgrim accommodation with us tonight.


Dinner a la pilgrim at our Refugio tonight here in Italy.


Such wonderful streetscapes abound!!!!



Waiting patiently for someone to tell us if we have a bed here at the parish accommodation tonight. We’ve gone from being in control of almost everything in our lives to being in control of almost nothing!!! Very humbling indeed!!!
