A Rennaissance and a can of beans

Taking a train from Rome to Florence, we enjoyed views of the Italian countryside. Boy is reading about the Renaissance and was happy to tell us all about the art of Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. He has decided he doesn’t like the Medici’s however, and has no interest in viewing any Medici palaces, as they killed too many people.

We wandered through the Duomo, and climbed the bell tower of the cathedral for some lovely views of the city. The street vendors and toy stores in town were filled with Pinnochio characters. Boy was enticed to buy a small Pinnochio keychain to add to his backpack collection. None of these compared however to the excitement of finding Heinz beans at the international grocery store. His dinner was sorted!
