Florence. Beautiful. Those two words go together so well. It really is the city of art – there are numerous galleries and museums, statues and beautiful buildings everywhere: churches, palaces of the Medici and other noble families, so much history. And the gelato shops and the shopping. It may be touristy but there are great leather jackets and shoes and bags and other clothes to buy. Pity our backpacks are full – anything new we buy means we have to throw something else out to make room! The downside to all this wonder is that Florence is seen as being very expensive for Italy and it is full of tourists, mainly American and Asian tour groups following their leaders. We love it though so we’re looking forward to our next visit. We'll do a separate post on Florence later ...
