And there we were out earlier today....tried to catch a bus to Lucca on our street....that didn't eventuate so moved to our plan B! An adventurous climb for me however a very pretty walk up (emphasis on up!) on slow mode to San Miniato & David's square. The view over Firenze is just magnificant!!
San Miniato 1013-18. It has an adjoining Monastery run by the Olivetans since1373. Can hear them chanting prayer. The pavement in photos dates 1207. The Fresco cycle dates 1387 of saint Benedict. The Monks here make Benedictine Liqueurs, honey & herbal teas.
Did you know: liqueurs are historical descendants of herbal medicines which were made as early as the 13th century by Monks.

Just some sceneic photos today then back down..(emphasis on down) through some Florence streets.

San Miniato
It looked some climb. But the views were the reward. You should have bought roller skates to go back down with :) xx
