Florence charmed me beyond belief. It welcomed me with open arms and embraced me fully and completely. Florence is that cute little town in the Tuscany region, surrounded by mountains you just instantly fall in love with. The town is bursting with beauty in the form of art, sculpture, food, wine, science and architecture. Although Florence is the birthplace of the renaissance, the town is really mellow and easygoing. Will and I were so busy trekking to every spot…from the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Pitti, Ponte Vecchio all the way to the Florence Cathedral and the Duomo. If sightseeing isn’t your deal, Florence is the perfect town to sit back and relax with your plate full of mouthwatering pasta and glass of Italian wine. The food alone is worth going to Florence for. Of Course shopping is always a good idea.
Did I tell you Florence also has spectacular views. Every view is a gorgeous photo op. Climb the Duomo and the sight on top is unbelievable. A 360 degree view of Florence awaits you. It’s exhilarating being that high in the Duomo. I never saw a view like it. The whole town of Florence below and the horizon and the mountains above. It’s like floating on a cloud.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to visit the million other sights like the Medici Chapels which we regret. Florence is beautiful and has so much to offer. It has won my heart. I can’t wait to go back.
