Solo Backpacking in Europe: Florence – lovely city in Tuscany

The train(Trenitalia) to Florence from Rome is just 2 hours.

And here I am, Florence.
We arrived in Firenze S.M.N terminal on time.
Its cloudy, and it rained a while ago.

Following my GPS, I just need to walk to Plus Hostel..I think my offline GPS is trying to kill me…haha!
The walk took 15-20 minutes , I think … from this point, my back is shouting for help!!! πŸ˜‚

Eventually, thank God, I found my hostel, I’m on time for the Check in, so I arrange my stuff before going out.

Since I already established my trust with my offline gps…I went with it.
Now it’s telling me that all the attractions are walking distance.
OK, I said, it will save me money.

And well, it took me maybe 20-30 minutes to spot the Duomo 😊



Then walk for about 10 minutes , and you will see the Ponte Vecchio…nice 😊

The Uffizi Museum, is just around the corner.😊

Going back to Duomo from Ponte Vecchio, I spot the Michael Angelo Museum.

Walking around in Florence is soooo nice and safe I should say 😊
It’s a bit different from Rome as it is crowded.
So I enjoyed walking around Florence. πŸ˜€

One Day in Florence

The next day, is Pisa andΒ Cinque Terre (for one whole day).

I woke up late, like 8:00 am, and bought a buffet breakfast in the hostel, I plan to eat and rest while waiting for my scheduled train to Venice. But well, 2 hours for buffet is enough, and I think I need to walk, cause I’m really full.

So I went back to Ponte Vecchio, because I still don’t have a nice picture with the Ponte Vecchio, LOL.

2 weeks budget itinerary in Europe

After 1 hour, I went back to the hostel, to prepare my things as I need to walk again (sigh) to the Firenze S.M.N.

But all of a sudden it rains, so hard, not now! I need to walk..huhu
so I waited for 15 minutes , but it still raining, at least it’s just showers, so that’s OK..I can handle that πŸ˜€

And so I wait in the terminal for my train to arrive.
