Think I might've stayed at the same place.Distantpeak;390392 said:Yeah I liked Florence. Went there in 1990... were lot of needle using druggies by the river... but what a lovely city. Stayed in a hotel with a pool overlooking the city... .
My most memorable pool I have stayed in was Hotel Caesar Augutus in CapriMoo Uaon;390418 said:Think I might've stayed at the same place.
Great spot. Pool got a good workout being summer. Swarms of bees and pollon everywhere not so good 55
And Contiki trips took you on a bus trip around Europe... so you were with the same party crowd all trip...MarcTwoSix;390428 said:I started traveling when I was 25yrs old
I foolishly scoffed at staying at hostels....not realizing the party scene of them
I notice some trees in those pictures... for some reason I thought it was too cold there for trees.. obviously not!Notorius;390432 said:I loved Iceland and when there it feels like you are on the edge of the world. The scenery is breathtaking and as a holiday destination very few places compare. As I said before it is very expensive. A pint of beer was €10. But when you are on a trip of a lifetime money shouldn’t matter.
I found this article which goes through prices if anyone is interested. https://adventures.is/blog/prices-in-iceland/
Might be it. Will have a better look when I get to my laptop.Distantpeak;390435 said:Is that the place in Florence? I only vaguely remember it... could be it... 55
Yeah... that sounds like it... and a swimming pool out the back with views over the city.... nothing flash inside... but what a location...Moo Uaon;390439 said:Might be it. Will have a better look when I get to my laptop.
I remember the little courtyard/turnaround bit in front of it.
You might've had the same thing?
Pull up and get out and the staff greet us and fill us in about Florence and the history of the villa.
Went something like this... Place is said to be haunted by the ghost of the original owners wife as she committed suicide by jumping off that balcony up there... points and someone throws a dummy dressed as a woman out and over the balcony 55
