I recently spent six nights in Florence. When I have had a little more time, I will write more extensively about my time there, my thoughts and the places I visited. And what I missed and what I wouldn’t do again.
And what a beautiful city it is. I am so glad I travelled in Autumn when the temperatures were cool and the crowds small. I could take my time and wander (and get lost). And following my friend Sandy’s advice, I gave myself permission to follow my path and not one set out by other travellers.
So, in the end, I did go to a few popular tourist destinations, but mostly I wandered, experienced and absorbed Florence, my way.
I will go back, hopefully, many times. I will visit again on my own, take my small tour groups and hopefully with my partner Dan. It is a city I don’t think I will ever tire of, and because of its location, it will make a great base to explore the surrounding towns, like Bologna and Verona as well as Siena and Lucca, to name just a few.
For now, enjoy my favourite photos of Florence, not a must-see list by any means, but more a reflection of how I saw Florence.
