Photo Friday: Florence, Italy
Florence may be my favorite Italian city of the three I’ve visited. Rome and Venice are the other two.
Despite the troubles my travel companions and I had finding suitable lodging upon arriving in the Tuscan city to find that the hostel we had booked online did not exist, I fell in love with the city’s charm.
I dined on pasta and tiramisu. I ate gelato and drank red wine — a carafe of the house red was an unbeatable deal at most restaurants. I purchased handmade leather bracelets. But, mostly, I admired the art. It was everywhere I looked. I stood in awe of Michelangelo’s David — the most gorgeous inanimate man ever created — at the Accademia Gallery. Everywhere we walked through the city provided sights of historic sculptures and beautifully detailed architecture.
Below are some unedited photos from my short stay in Florence in May 2006.
