I continue this journey in Toscana with a visit to Firenze, home of so many treasures of the world culture that I cannot even attempt to name a few.
It is a city that does not knock you out on first sight, but instead grows on you.
Ponte Vecchio, one of the landmarks.
The river Arno is the blessing and the curse of the city. It has flooded the city many times, and in some of the floods has killed people and destroyed invaluable art treasures.
Galleria Uffizzi, an art lover’s dream.
Around the corner…
Palazzo Vecchio awaits you
Standing there for centuries
witness to the rise and fall of the Medici
Wandering around the streets you can see the emblem of the city
and have dinner in Enoteca Pincchiori, one of the gastronomic landmarks of the city, straight across the street from Michelangelo house.
or try a more modest but also delicious dinner in “Il Latini”
And then for a nice sleep behind the closed windows.
Buonanote Firenze e grazie!!!
