Last Morning in Florence

We decided to make the most of our last morning in Florence and took a walk to San Miniato al Monte, perched high on a hill with fantastic views of Florence.

We started from the Ponte Vecchio and walked up a steep road, past the former home of Galileo Galilei and up to Forte Belvedere.

The walk took us up a steep hill then almost all the way down again, then up towards the church - San Miniato al Monte (below).

Once we reached the top we were rewarded with a magnificant view at a viewpoint just below the church, with the whole of Florence laid out before us. Yet another photo opportunity. Below you can see a photo of of the view.
