Wow…what a weekend!
We met Nana and Papa G down in Florence for a few days before heading over to the Mediteranean coast. It was a great time and so much fun to have family here with us to share the food, history, beauty, and sun-drenched Tuscan days.
We had been to Florence before, but it is one of those cities that has more to discover each and every time we visit. Last time we were here, we hit all of the larger sites. This time, we snuck those in but also got to wander a little more and enjoy more of the food and cultural aspects (and wine) of Tuscany.
We meandered on Ponte Vecchio, went into the Pitti Palace’s Boboli Gardens, toured the Duomo, shopped a bit, hit the leather market, rode the carousel (well as least the kids did) in the Piazza della Republica where our hotel was located, sat down for a nice cocktail every night, and enjoyed huge, wonderful meals. We also got to see the statue of David this time around, which was larger than life and really an inspiration to see in person.
So here is a summary of the two days we spent in Florence in pictures.
I will see you back here tomorrow for a look at our pictures from Santa Margherita (which are kind of amazing and make me want to live there)! Ciao Ciao!
