15th JuneTime 2 PmTemp :- 14*CWhile in europe, flights costs very less and saves a lot the travel time also as compare to any other mode of transportation (If booked in advance).I did the same. Had an evening flight to Rome and reached around 11 30 pm to just to make it to the last bus to help me reach the hostel.Next 2 days were spent exploring each and every corner of Rome by foot. Rome has got some marvellous architecture dipped in gothic style.
Day 5: We rested during the morning before heading to the train station to take a 12:10PM train for a day-trip to Siena. Since it was a Sunday we got to know there would be lesser transportation in terms of buses. Siena was about an hour and a half from Florence. It is recommended to travel by bus as you get to pass scenic vineyards on the way. We walked from the station to the city center through the quaint little streets; there we visited Piazza del Campo which is a huge square. Siena is a walled city and the entire city has medieval brick buildings. Given it was a Sunday, most shops were shut which also meant lesser tourists. We then had lunch at one of the cafes in the streets and then went to the Siena Duomo, Cathedral of Siena. Then headed to the bus station and took an express bus back to Florence passing the picturesque vineyards. We later strolled through the streets of Florence and then had our last dinner in Florence.
