Bifocal Reviews Tuscany,Florence, Pisa

Day four Livorno/ Pisa, Florence (Tuscany) From the ship we shared a taxi with George, Karen,Jim and Jan to the train station. They had convinced us that (even though none had done it before) it would be easy. On the dock (bolstered by great success in Rome and other "foreign language" ports), we found a taxi driver who spoke perfect English. Karen (who shared my same birthday) made sure we negotiated a price BEFORE getting into the cab. For all six of us, we were told that it would be 20 euros total. Naturally, through some hard haggling and shrewd negotiation we ended up paying 24 euros. The driver couldn't figure out what was going on, but took the money anyway and was happy. From there things took a good turn.
