Travel Blog Part 3 | Florence

I know this very long overdue. These photos are of my trip to Northern Italy and Switzerland last June. Our last stop on our four city itinerary was the romantic Florence. It is the land of the Medici family, Tuscan wine and of course, beautiful human beings like most European cities.

I hope you all enjoy and feast your eyes on the beautiful landscapes Florence had to offer!

This has got to be the most beautiful cathedral interior I have laid eyes on. Ever. It was made with local stone, which makes it quite different in its design. Here is a little history lesson for you. This catherale was actually supposed to be bigger than the St. Peter Basilica in Rome. But the leader said that shouldn’t be so, this is actually a part of the apse(architecture vocab.) of that one part of the huge supposidly. History lesson over!

Siena's Piazza Del Campo. Once a year they have horse races around this tilted piazza that dates since the medieval time.

This city looks good in all angles. Florence is a quite a small city with a part of history in every corner. Did I mention that this is where the famous writer Dante was from? and the love of his life was Beatrice? Enough of that, I am rambling.

What are your favorite sites in Florence?

What are other beautiful cities in Italy?

      1. Rome is quite big. Much bigger than Florence. But definitely walkable all over with an added work out. Always be watchful of your belongings there. There is so much to see there. I am afraid this reply will be a bit long! So here is a few places to see… The Trevi Fountain, pantheon, Spanish steps, St Peter’s Basilica and the forum!
