Florence

Beers in the gutter

semi-overcast 26 °C

26 September we jump on a high speed train bound for Florence where we will spend the next 2 nights. Our last visit was even more brief than this one and we were thrilled to be back. The city still has the mark of the great artists and minds that spent so much time here centuries ago. To stand in Palazzo della Signoria is quite amazing, a spectacle for your eyes. These days it is full of tourists, but it is great to wander though and get lost in the cities narrow streets where you can find many hidden gems, including some delicious panini. Having such a short time here we didn't attempt to visit all the museums but rather just strolled around to get a feel for the city. One of a favourite things to do was grab a beer and find somewhere to sit and just watch.

On our last afternoon we make the trek up to Piazzale Michelangelo (Michelangelo Square) for the best panoramic views of the city. It was a very muggy day and there are many stairs to climb, but the view at the top is well worth the sweat, and leg aches.
