Florence (Firenze) is up in my top 5 favourite cities. Whenever the wanderlust gets me, I have to think of Florence. Florence is one of the most beautiful and picturesque cities. I have been so far twice to Florence and hope to return soon.
In May 2017, my life partner and took a cruise along the Mediterranean sea. On the 3rd day, we docked in the port of Livorno and booked an excursion to Florence. Even though we had only 6 hours in Florence, we knew we would come back.
At the end of September 2018, we spend eight days in Florence. One of the best holidays we had so-far. We rented an apartment on Via Ghibellina, most attractions in Florence were within 10 to 30 minutes walking distance.
Gardens, Parks, Museums, Architecture, Shops, Restaurants, Street food you name it, Florence, has it.
