18 Florence, Firenze Italy
Up not too early, breakfast buffet and off the ship to land. We took a taxi with our new friends Anne and Barb from Toronto, and arrived at Livorno train station. We bought return tickets to Firenze. Anne and Barb brought deck of cards and we played Euchre all the way, just over an hour.
Walked through Florence at a speed in the sun. The gals purchased fabulous leather hand bags. We stopped for a brief lunch and beverages. Then Gelato. We saw statues and the bridge Ponte Vecchio. Then a brisk walk back to begin the journey by train back to Livorno.
So exhausted from heat we started to fall sleep. We wanted to get back in time for the theme event on the ship, the white night. Everyone dressed, table tops covered on open deck, music live followed by DJ Marcio. It was fun and magic and the frozen margaritas were refreshing. We danced.
This is really a great offering with Azamara Club Cruises, to have the white night event. All white table cloths adorn tables on the outside pool deck. All guests are invited to wear white. The servers are also in white shirts. The food is an outdoor barbecue Mediterranean style.
Lots of great flavours and sights that fill the senses. Lovely event under the sky aboard such a beautiful ship.
