Buona notte, Firenze ... until the morning ...

"I got lost in Florence at nine o'clock, one night, and staid lost in that labyrinth of narrow streets and long rows of vast buildings that look all alike, until toward three o'clock in the morning. It was a pleasant night and at first there were a good many people abroad, and there were cheerful lights about. Later, I grew accustomed to prowling about mysterious drifts and tunnels and astonishing and interesting myself with coming around corners expecting to find the hotel staring me in the face, and not finding it doing any thing of the kind." - Mark Twain, Innocents Abroad (1869)

Well, I can't say that I ever got lost again after the first morning in Florence, of course my circle was a pretty small of the historic old city, Ciao, til the morning.

Here's a few 21:00ish shots as I walked back across the Arno to the Hotel Santa Croce:
