The Renaissance City

Il Duomo in all its Renaissance glory

Baptistry doors in gold...

Ponte Vecchio

A real life cupid!

As you may have guessed, I took a brief trip to Florence for the day yesterday. Above are some pics! It was nice to be there again, despite some large transportation struggles (including a woman at the tourist office in Florence- lets call her "Mis" Information- who told me the wrong bus stop, which then in domino effect caused major problems getting back to Montepulciano!)

Today is my last day here and at school. I may be MIA the next couple of days as I travel to Cinque Terre, but will be back with full reports!



  1. Firenze! Ponte Vecchio! There is so much to love about Florence, minus the woman giving you the wrong bus directions. We're so glad you're having such a good time in Italia and we miss you!

  2. I love florence - i think its my favorite city in Italia - i had some amazing gelato (townside) - on that road leading to Pne Vecchio - dont remember what it was called - but they had a bazillion flavors....have some gelato for me!
