One last post on our stay at the Hotel Santa Maria Novella. I can't believe that I ended up with so many posts on this hotel - I typically do none, but it was so different!
The day we checked out we decided to wait in the "Napoleon Room" for a bit before we left for the train station. You can see why it is called the "Napoleon Room". Why this Italian Hotel felt compelled to have a French room is beyond me!! It was a fun little room with a large coffee table filled with art books and big books on Italy. It also had a guest book so I definitely had to sign it and put in a little art. Pitiful compared to all the incredible art we had seen for the last three days in the museums! Len is standing next to the desk with the guest book.
I realized I have very few other pictures in this time period. We went to museums and they did not allow any pictures. I bought books for each. I will need to take a few sketches out of my book and document the museums best I can. I was a bit negligent on taking pictures while walking in the city.
