Florence

Earlier this year I travelled around Italy. I have been blogging about it since, but somehow managed to miss one of my absolute favorites – Firenze!

I had been in Florence before, and it had been my favourite city in Italy. I was a little bit afraid it would disappoint.

Turns out I fell even more in Love with the capital of Tuscany. So much so, that it was one of my top choices for my Erasmus.

This city has something special. Besides being filled with art – including some must see works, – like Michael Angelo’s David and a room filled with Botticelli’s at the Uffizi, – I find it captures what I love about Italy. Everyone is nice. The food is amazing – I truly fell in love with the San Lorenzo market – and even if it is the second or third most important city, I feel everyone knows everyone.

Against all odds I don’t find this to be a particularly photogenic town. Quite the opposite. I never seem to capture its full charm.

Maybe that is why I love it. It has something a lens can’t quite capture.

Of course I tried and am posting a few of the winning shots.

  1. You didn’t do such a bad job! It’s a city I would love to see, even more so than Rome, yet you’re right. I haven’t seen too many astounding photos of Firenze either.

    • Thank you! Even not being too photogenic it is still one amazing place! But you have to see it for yourself!

      If you get the chance you should definetly visit your friend there – and you will even have a personal guide to show you the town! I am sure you won’t regret going to italy! πŸ™‚

  3. Visited Tuscany last autumn. Stayed in Lucca and spent an afternoon in Florence. Didn’t get into the Uffizi but took loads of photos of the Duomo. That is quite spectacular.
