Our next stop in Italy was Florence. I've learned that each of the major Italian cities are one of a kind, their uniqueness distinctly separates them from one another. Getting out of the train station I knew I was far away from glamorous Milan and in a new old beautiful city with amazing scenery, ready for me to explore.
Walk, get lost, walk, stumble upon substantial buildings, walk, get lost, gelato stop, walk, pasta stop, walk, pizza stop and walk is all we did.
The architecture, rivers, bridges and the back drop of fields and trees makes Florence one of the most beautiful cities I've visited. We spent quite a bit of time just sitting, watching and soaking it all in.
Florence is incredibly beautiful. We spent 3 and a half days in Florence, if you're just planning on exploring Florence the city by walking around and taking in the sites two days would be optimal. You definitely don't get sick of how beautiful the place is, but we did struggle to find things to do that wasn't just sightseeing. But the city is filled with note worthy galleries, so if that's your thing a week might not even be long enough.
Have you been to Florence? Did you also spend your days walking around, eating and getting lost?
Thanks for reading!
