Florence


Florence! Probably my favorite city in Italy. It is known as the "Cradle of Renaissance" and has been called "The Athens of the Middle Ages." Florence is also known as one of the Fashion Capitals of the world.


Michaleangelo's "David" found in the Accademia Gallery.




Piazza Del Duomo Cathedral



I love how you can visit almost all of the tourist spots here in just 15 minutes.


Piazza della Signoria



The Fountain of Neptune by Bartolomeo Ammannati


Perseus with the Head of Medusa



Uffizi Gallery





Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli



La Primavera  by Sandro Botticelli





Doni Tondo by Michelangelo



Medusa by Caravaggio


Ponte Vecchio Bridge
I was surprised to see that this bridge was filled with jewelry shops and art dealers!




Some of the tools in Castello del Trebbio built by the Pazzi Family.

I definitely left my heart in this city! I can't wait to go back.

Next stop, the Floating City, Venice.
