Rome to Florence Wednesday 22 February 1893
Today the pilgrims left Rome by special train to journey to Florence.  During their time in Italy they had really missed ‘a nice cup of tea’ so they were delighted to have tea made for them by the travellers in the next carriage.  Scarcely had they finished their tea when the axle of the back carriages caught fire and the train had to stop while repairs were carried out.  They eventually continued and travelled through vineyards and tunnels and over bridges, arriving in Florence at 6 30pm.
