And How Many Steps?

Breakfast at the Le  Contesse B & B - yogurt, orange juice, pastry, and coffee .
Carol forgets walking stick and returns to the room while I wait in circle which is bustling with activity and vehicles. Pass the Tower to check out lines to visit Il Duomo. Get in line and then find out we have to buy tickets at the Tower. Get in line at the Tower, buy tickets, and then get back in line for the Dome. Climb the 463 stone steps. Incredible view from the cupola. We look down on Giotto's tower.

Walk to train station to buy train tickets to Rome.
Eat lunch at McDonalds across from the Train Station  - NYC CHICKEN SANDWICH -
Walk back to Il Duomo and stand in line to go into the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. Visit lowerst level and see remnants of orig buildings.

At this point I am too tired to do much else. Decide to buy ticket for city sightseeing  bus and it is the best idea! We take blue bus two times, then yellow and then red. Get to see all parts of the city with narration (ear buds). Plus it is cool on the top of the bus and we do not have to climb stairs, except to the top of the bus.

Slice of eggplant pizza for dinner.
Carol checks and rechecks bus stops for tomorrow's trip with luggage to the train station,
Back to B & B and pack for Rome.
