28 433km // FLORENCE // ITALY

Having spent just three short days in this magical town, I can now totally relate to my mom’s dream of visiting Florence. It’s as special and romantic as the clichés make it out to be, and I would honestly spend all my Autumns here if I could.

We first arrived in Florence (en route to our next Workaway), stopping for just one night to breathe in some fresh Tuscan air (and to eat big cheesy pizzas and mouth-watering gelatos, obviously!) What soon followed, was a we-got-lost-and-loved-it tour of the city centre, stopping at the grand Il Duomo di Firenze (holy hell this is a GORGEOUS creation), crossing the unique structure of Ponte Vecchio, and ending up at Piazzale Michelangelo to view the bronze cast David replica, and a panoramic site that literally left us speechless.

Round two of our Florence trip, had us stopping by a month later to celebrate our 5 year anniversary (unreal that time has flown so fast, and it still feels like we met on our blind date just yesterday) to enjoy a memorable tour of the entire city in a vintage Fiat 500. I can safely say, that if you are planning on visiting Florence, and want to get a real taste of Italy’s second capital, you should, hands-down, do it in one of these little Italian icons. Most fun we’ve had in a while!

Oh, one last thing… David is very well, um, sculpted (just in case you were wondering).

  5. Find a way to get to Cinque Terre. You’ll be speechless again. Doing Italy with my other half as well, only we stayed in Florence with a big fat rental car. Biggest mistake ever!

    Enjoy!
