So after a long hot flight, we arrived in Tuscany. My husband (still training myself to use that word) was near his breaking point when we finally arrived in Florence (Firenze) and we made the short drive to Montecatani Terme and arrived about 3:55 Italy time. We showered quickly (re:smelled french) and went down for a quick lay of the land tour of the town, and then spent a bit by the pool checking email and acclimating. Now we are at the 7PM welcome reception for our travel company , Club ABC Tours , enjoying a nice glass (or two ) of Procecco. I have to say …. Yum. Slightly tart and straight to the head. Or minds are awake, but our bodys are real tired. Left JFK at 9:20 PM landed in Rome at 11:45 local time. Then had to wait in a mind numbing line to go through security again (didn’t we do this at JFK) with multiple tools cutting in line because they were running late (so were we). Finally we get to the gate and catch our connection. Once in Florence I was utterly disappointed with hertz. I was told there was a gold counter , of which there was none. As a gold member, I was supposed to get an upgrade , I did not. Then I was told the car would be around in 10 minutes, and 25 minutes later still no car. Finally the car comes and we were off. We arrived in Montecatini Terme shortly there after.
