Travelog: 2017.05.10 Part 2
Florence is a place I wouldn’t mind returning to – there are so many little shops that are selling unique, artsy things. I wish we already have our own home right now, because there are so many lovely things that would make a home special! We are in a rental apartment (a very nice one, but still…) and until we settle down and get our own home, I’m trying SO HARD not to buy stuff for our “future home” because 1) there is honestly not enough space to store them, and 2) it would cost so much to ship all my garbage to wherever we end up at.
We went to Pizzale Michelangelo by bus to have a late lunch and to look at the gorgeous view of the city. Well worth the visit!!! We were lucky the weather was great… Would have been best if we went around sunset but since it sets around 9:30pm daily here, no chance of that!!! It was SO sunny and hot, but for the sake of photos, I presevered! Not the best photos because we had to wait several times so that we could have no strange tourists in our photos, and at the same time trying to minimize time spent in the sun.
Lots of art everywhere, be it on the walls, on the streets or the human performers themselves. Truly the Italian city of arts and culture!!!
Saw the Medici Chapel but it was already closed. Oh well! I can always come back again. Everything is within walking distance (well, almost everything) and with all the small alleys, there is plenty to discover. I’ve only been here one day, but I think this would be a city I would love.
