Florence was day 4 destination. 1 hour 45 minutes by train. Very charming and rich in history and architecture. We would’ve enjoyed it more if the weather was not hot, it was pretty hot. I think the best time to visit florence is April, May, sept and Oct. We have spent 9 hours walking around but if you want to cover more or almost all, you need to come early and leave late.
Narrow stone roads, churches, cafe’s and restaurant’s, Gelato, Gelato and Gelato. Full of tourist, a 200 m queue maybe just to enter the Basilica and its tower. I was with family so i saved it for next time. One of the most beautiful sites is the gold market which is located on an old bridge with an amazing view on the river.
It definitely worth staying couple of nights but it is coverable in one day. If your located in Milano or Roma it definitely worth the trip Just make sure you do your homework properly.
The waiter laughed when he looked at our plates. I don’t think there is a better way to tell him that the food was nice. but unfortunately i did not have any pics. We had arabiata, pesto, veggi-pizza and greek salad with Coca-Light in a glass full of ice. We could not walk after that meal.
I have to come back to Florence without family.
Shopping + Florence = NO
