When the weather was said to be bad again for the weekend in Germany we decided to book the night train to Florence.
The train runs every night from Munich to Rome. It was another great night on the train, at 6 in the morning we arrived in Florence. After a short walk along the river Arno we took the next train to Vicchio. Apart from staying at the city we wanted to see a bit of the real Tuscany. During the train ride we saw the great landscape. For one night we booked a very nicely looking hotel called Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort. It is about 5km away from the train station in Vicchio. Actually you can take a taxi to go up to the hotel, but it was such a nice day, therefore we decided to walk. After more than one hour we arrived at the hotel. The hotel is situated on a hill which gives you a beautiful view down to the valley. Moreover the hotel is surrounded by olive trees. Every autumn there is the olive harvest and oil is produced. During your stay you will have the opportunity to try the homemade olive oil. Also the food served in the enclosed restaurant can be recommended.
