Cesar Azpilicueta gets away from it all...

Cesar Azpilicueta looked to be in good spirits as he soaked up some of the views in Florence after jetting off for a short break.

The Spanish defender was left out of the national team squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Italy and Albania after Chelsea’s rocky start to the season.

The full-back helped Chelsea return to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend as the west London side beat Hull City 2-0 in the top flight.

That result followed the disappointment of back to back Premier League defeats at the hands of Arsenal and Liverpool in recent weeks.

Azipilicueta was left out of the Spain squad along with Chelsea team-mates Cesc Fabregas and Pedro Rodriguez.

However, the Spaniard did not look too downbeat as he enjoyed a short trip to Italy before reporting back to Chelsea’s training ground to work on his fitness levels.
