Forty two U3A members had a wonderful six days in Florence. Our hotel overlooked the river Arno and was a stone's throw from the Ponte Vecchio. Excellent tour guides shepherded us around the Uffizi Gallery, the Galleria dell’Accademia and several others, leaving us leisure time to explore Florence as we wished. We spent one day in Siena and, one evening, many of us went to a concert of Italian opera at a nearby church. Not everything went well. Our flight home from Pisa was cancelled at short notice because of local transport strikes. We had to make a six-hour coach journey to Nice airport in order to get home. Never mind. We did it. Thanks a million Wynne. We are your greatest fans.
