Florence and Sienna

While we stayed in Florence and just took a day to see Sienna, if I did it again, I would have stayed in Sienna and just visited Florence.  I wasn't totally impressed with the Tuscan region as I thought I would have been.  I like the coast much better.  Having said that, there are some beautiful things to see in that region.  In Florence, a climb to the top of the Duomo is a sure thing.  Also, visit the Ponte Vecchio bridge, although I didn't buy anything, it's still cool to see.

Sienna was my favorite out of these two cities.  We spent Christmas Day here, even attending mass at the Cathedral.  So amazing!
