Florence is a feast for your entire being. It is a festival of sights, sounds and tastes steeped in a big pot of history.
Try as you surely will, it cannot all be consumed in a visit or two.
And the pot is stirred each new day.
Sure the buildings which have remained for centuries may appear unchanged.
But from il Porcellino at the Loggia Del Mercato Nuovo.
To the Ponte Vecchio stone arched walkway over the Arno River.
Your time there will be different because you will be in it.
Take time to notice the people and enjoy how they help animate these architectural marvels.
This young man was playing guitar and singing James Taylor’s “You’ve Got A Friend.”
These accordion players squeezed out a sweet “Roll Out The Barrel” while we were listening. Made me wish I had my polka shoes.
I was frequently tempted to linger to listen just a bit longer.
Shopping opportunities are abundant for a range of budgets.
You can’t leave without a taste of something.
La Dolche Vita!
