Two Americans in Italy – The Beauty of Florence [PICTURES]
Florence, Italy is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen in my life. My wife and I were on our own when we visited this historic city.
Highlights included the Ponte Vecchio bridge, the statue of David, the view from Piazzale Michelangelo, and the gelato at Santa Trinita. It was the best gelato we had in Italy and we had gelato every single day, sometimes twice. We rod the Hop On Hop Off bus around the city so we could see it all before we decided what we wanted to go do.
We stayed at a hotel that didn't have an elevator and we were on the the 3rd floor. After we got our over-packed suitcases to our rooms, it kind of added to the charm. Every restaurant we ate at in Florence was fantastic and surprisingly affordable.
Thanks to my lovely wife, Jenny, for taking the wonderful photos.
