Florence was one of the cities I was looking forward to most in Italy. I had heard from so many different people that Florence was their favorite city, while on the contrary, others favored Rome and said Florence was just ok. I was eager to see the hype of both places and which side of the scale I would fall: Team Florence or Team Rome. I won’t say until I post about Rome, but I’ll start with alluding to the fact that there is nothing to not love about Florence. For such a big city I felt like it had such a quaint feel, and its proximity to it’s breathtaking Tuscan counterparts make it the ideal hub for the region.
Like any city, Florence was a melting pot of people, amazing food and architecture to gawk at for as long as your feet can stand walking. We would spend our mornings having coffee and pastries while sightseeing, then come back to our Airbnb to regroup before taking an evening stroll, where we would randomly fall upon a cozy little spot for dinner. Around the corner from our place was a merry-go-round, where a guy was making huge bubbles for the entertainment of children and adult alike. The combination of both made the atmosphere extra light hearted and sweet, which was the perfect start to an evening out with my new husband in a dress that is one of his favorites.
