Let’s bask in the cultural enrichment Firenze (Florence) provides. It is really a shame my stay in Firenze was too short because I loved the atmosphere and architecture of this place the most out of all the cities I’ve visited in Italy.

The city itself doesn’t seem too large yet there’s plenty of streets and corners to explore.

I’ve also had the chance to try out (dare I say) the best gelato in Italy. The picture above shows handmade chocolate and banana flavored gelato. YUM. For two euros I could eat five of these every day.

True birthplace of Renaissance, many sites and streets in Florence were named after great Renaissance thinkers.

Because of the time constraint,ย there are two things I regret not doing in Florence.

  1. Going up the tower in Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore to see the aerial view of the city.
  2. Going to Galleria dell’Accademia to see Michelangelo’s statue of David.

I thought David was in Uffizi Gallery. Poor research on my part.

If I do get to go to Italy again in the future, I’m definitely including Florence in my journey.
