Falling for Florence

After all of the excitement in Venice we were excited for our next stop- Florence, or as the Italians say, Firenze!  The weather was a bit more humid when we visited (think BIG hair kind of day) but that didn’t stop us from exploring.

We stayed in an adorable little flat near the San Lorenzo market, which put us in prime walking distance to all of the sights we wanted to see.  Kevin and I spent the next few days just oohing and ahhing at all of the beautiful architecture and history.  The Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Piazzale Michelangelo.. all so grand, had a way of making you feel so small!

I wish we had taken more pictures of the food here since it was some of the favorite we had on the trip.  We did however drink massive amounts of coffee as we were still adjusting to the time change.  Italian coffee is absolutely delicious, but so very strong!



We had planned to visit the Galleria dell’Accademia – or Accademia Gallery, to visit Michelangelo’s famous David sculpture but sadly found out it was closed on Mondays.  Luckily there is a replica located at the Piazzale Michelangelo.  It was a blessing in disguise because the replica sits on a hill overlooking the city.  You get full, panoramic views of Florence in all it’s glory!
