To explain Florence is like that euphoric feeling you have when you are exactly where you want to be with the sun shining down on your face. Florence is a magical city full of lush green beauty and stunning architecture that will seduce you the minute you step off the plane.
I knew the second I laid eyes on the Renaissance city that it would be hard to beat. We went from sipping too much wine in Chianti to doing circles around the massive Duomo trying to figure out which side we lived on. We decided to just stop at a park bench and marvel at the sheer size.
I swooned over all of the sculptures surrounding the Boboli Gardens and Michelangelo’s David at the Accademia Museum. The precision is astounding.
Watching the sunset at Ponte Vecchio on the Arno river after having a Florentine steak reminds me why I love to travel so much; To experience the natural beauty in the world. There is no surprise the entire city center of Florence is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Taste a bit of Tuscany: It will touch your heart and soul.
