My favorite memory of Florence was the pool at our hotel and the service of drinks while we swam. Clearly, lawsuits and attorneys haven't ruined a good time here. Food was excellent, but the "famed" leather products were a bit of a disappointment. Elise bought a nice looking purse which broke within a couple days. I was a bit dissapointed by the David, but totally loved the Bottecelli's, as they looked so much like Elise!
