Okay, so I have to admit...Florence was probably my favorite place we visited. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every place we went; but for some reason Florence just took my breathe away. I loved that it was an artsy city with beautiful things to go and see, but there was also great shopping, great food, and it was clean!
My favorite things about Florence had to have been engulfing the best gelato(s)--is it sad that that would be the first think I mention?! I Loved walking along Ponte Vecchio (where there are dozens of little shops), and I did splurge on a pair of shoes at my new favorite shoe store. Climbing to the top of the Il Duomo (and boy was that a long climb...especially when you had a lady behind you telling you--in all seriousness--to wait for her just in case she fainted or threw up since she is deathly afraid of heights and small spaces...awesome ha)
Unfortunately, we weren't able to go see the David...that museum was closed, oh well at least I've got a live replica at home *wink wink. I really just loved the ambiance of this beautiful city, it is for sure a place I'd love to go back to some day.
Sometimes I do things that totally embarrass my husband, not sure exactly what I did or said but I think this was one of those moments (it may have had to do with me asking a couple if they'd like me to take a picture of both of them, but they didn't speak English so I was trying to hand motion what I was trying to say and it was still unsuccessful) ugh oh well, at least he finds me entertaining?!
