So I know I said that I didn’t like massive posts that contain loads of pictures but I didn’t really know how to split that one. So this will have to do
and I hope you have a relatively good Internet provider!
For the last week of this Summer trip, we dropped our suitcases in Florence (or Firenze) and spent a day in Siena.
Florence was very quiet compared to Milan and Rome, but maybe that was a consequence of being there in August. A lot of shops were closed. The Duomo really overlooks the city and the succession of bridges leads to lovely promenades.
Even though it was the middle of Summer, I couldn’t resist a deliciously thick hot chocolate at Rivoire, but enjoyed a wonderful coconut+chocolate ice cream cone at the Gelateria Rinascimento.
Siena however is a much smaller city. There’s a few alleys that house small stores and restaurants and of course the Piazza del Campo that is much more crowded.
Back in Firenze we spent some time getting lost in the very large Boboli Gardens.
We ended our trip with a couple of days by the sea, but I didn’t take any photos. Hope this little series gave you a nice preview of some of Italy’s biggest cities!
