June 13 - Back in Florence the same afternoon after sightseeing in Pisa. Shots were taken the following day after a leather shopping spree at Mercato de San Lorenzo where we scored lightweight leather jackets, belts and wallets. Oooh, shopping frenzy in Firenze (Florence)!

June 10 - Another day, another tour. This time we were bound for the ancient castle of Chillon.


No one is sure when the castle was first built. Its site has been occupied since the Bronze Age, but most historians date the oldest parts of the château to about a thousand years ago and credit Pierre II of Savoy with building the present structure in the 13th Century. Its infamous dungeons were literally carved from the rock that supports the castle foundations. The visible portions of the castle include some two dozen buildings around three courtyards, all jammed together in a classically crowded medieval style.

For the last 200 years, the château has been owned by the Canton of Vaud, and it has been a tourist attraction since it was visited (and popularized) by 19th Century poets and authors such as Byron, Shelley, Victor Hugo, Hans Christian Andersen, Flaubert, Mark Twain, and Charles Dickens.
