The red roofs and warm colored buildings of Florence.
Many Italian homes have balconies and terraces, often decorated with flowers!
A common mode of transportation in the city is the Vespa!
Another popular way to get around the city is by bicycle.
A nice spot to relax for the afternoon is the Giardino Dell’Orticultura, north of the city center.
My favorite market to go to is Mercato Sant’Ambrogio; with delicious produce, a section inside the pavilion that sells homemade pesto sauce, and many stands outside that also sell clothing!
All around Florence are little flower markets, brightening up the street corners and piazzas.
Happening a few times a month, some piazzas throughout the city hold antique markets. It’s so interesting to browse the different booths and see all the vintage items that these vendors have.
Day after day, locals and tourists alike can be found hanging out in the piazzas under the Tuscan sun.
Art is present everywhere in the city; from the famous Renaissance art and architecture, to the artwork sold by local artists on the streets!
And after exploring far and wide around this amazing city, I always seem to end up on a street that leads me right back to the center of it all, the Duomo.
The world awaits…discover it.
