Florence, Italy - #AtoZtravel

Florence, beautiful Florence.

Florence is my favourite city in Italy. Not because the architecture is outstanding and Duomo di Firenze makes me swoon. Nor because the gelato is the best in the world or I have a soft spot for Gucci (who was born in Florence).

I love Florence purely because when walking the small cobbled streets or along the River Arno it feels like you have stepped right into a Renaissance landscape painting. Magical!

  1. Florence is such a beautiful city. I was there this summer and I would love to og back. Only thing is that the tourist Groups are so massive there that they could eat you alive if you can't handle big Groups of people :) :) However, Florence is Worth seeing.

    1. I think it's always best to try an visit most places in the off-season. If you visit Florence in early Spring or Autumn it's simply gorgeous :)
