Ohhh Florence, Italy was just as beautiful as I had imagined. After a quick train ride from Milan, we arrived. The beautiful cobble stone streets proved to be a major challenge for our suitcases, but we eventually made our way to our AirBnB. I definitely took full advantage of the Italian restaurants. The food was so delicious that all the restaurants had something amazing to offer. We chose to eat in the Piazza Santa Maria Novela on our first night; mainly because it was right by where we were staying (but it was so delicious too!) In Italy, there were so many deals that included an appetizer, main course, desert, and wine for a great price (yes, please!)
One of my favorite spots in the city was the cutest leather that sold mostly leather and hand-made goods. Everything was beautiful and amazing quality, so of course I took full advantage! I brought home a black bucket bag and a camel book-bag. While visiting Florence, the market is a MUST. Also, I would say that I became a gelato enthusiast while traveling, and the best gelato I had was right there, in Florence. Gelato Santa Trinita is located on the corner of the Santa Trinita bridge (duh).
If you’re in the mood to experience Florence night life, I definitely recommend Blanco Beach Bar or anywhere else wherever the locals are headed for the night -you can expect a fun time.
While strolling through the city, you’ll see the famous Duomo di Firenze, a vast cathedral in the middle of Florence. This was absolutely one of the most beautiful cathedrals I had ever seen. Also, as the sun is setting make sure to make your way to the Piazzale Michelangelo for a breath taking view of the city. And of course, the Statue of David is a classic.
I am already dreaming of my next trip to Italy, hopefully the Amalfi Coast is next.
