How I loved Florence, or Firenze, as it is known in Italian. The food, the people, the arts, the culture and the laid back atmosphere were all equally amazing. Our first stop was at a quaint restaurant for a massive heaping of pasta. After dinner we were served some shooters… we found out later that it was local custom to sip them. Oops.
The next morning, after some delicious cappuccinos, we took part in a walking tour of the city. We saw…
A replica of the statue of David in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, where it originally stood.
The notorious Ponte Vecchio (quite literally the old bridge).
Then we returned to the Ponte Vecchio to watch the sunset.
