    I love Florence. I really like wandering the back streets where there are few people and lots of treasures.

    Florence is my favorite Italian city. Of course, going to the Accademia to see David is always on my list of what to do. My next favorite gallery is the Bargello. I love walking along the Arno in the evening, and seeing lights reflected off the water at night. Florence is indeed a walking town…climb up to Piazzale Michelangelo, go to the Mercato San Ambrogio or the Mercato Centrale. Climb up Giotto’s tower, or to the top of the Duomo, go to a park and feed the ducks. So much to do, in a beautiful city.

    My friend and I got caught in a thunderstorm in Firenze. People jumped because of the thunder – then, laughed at themselves. Out came the umbrellas and plastic bags!

    The Ponte Vecchio always fascinated me! You could do a series of photos on that alone. And the Duomo!!! Beautiful, Margie! Love your photos.

  7. You captured so many favorites! I love that you included the picture of the leather vendor. I tend to wander through the open air market stalls every day when I’m in Florence. Thank you for posting!

  8. I love the Oltrarno and walking up to San Miniato but I have to say my favourite thing is going to Mass at Santa Croce on Sunday mornings. I sit as close as possible to Michelangelo’s tomb and feel the creative inspiration! Ciao, Cristina

    Thank you for the return trip to Florence! Sixteen years have passed since we traveled there, but the memories are as fresh as yesterday. When I walked in and saw the David I burst into tears. I had never dreamed I would have the opportunity to see this magnificent sculpture. Another memory…the rich, creamy ice cream cone I licked standing under my umbrella in the main plaza.

    Wonderful photos! I’m still not sure if the Duomo is crazy-beautiful or crazy-grotesque! Either way, it took my breath away 🙂
