So living in Rome has many benefits, one of them being that Florence is only a 1 hour train journey away. So little sister and I decided to take advantage of TrenItalia’s 2for1 Saturday ticket offer and spent 12 hours pottering around the beautiful streets of the Tuscan city.
Giardino di Boboli
Torta della Nonna [Brought from a tiny street bakery]Lunch at ‘Ino, for the best panino in Florence [2mins walk from the Uffizi Gallery]Gelato from the Gelateria Santa Trinita [with views looking on the bridge photographed above, I chose Pear and Blackberry flavour]
Whilst we were there Joana Vasconcelos had a small exhibition as well as the special loafer collection celebrating 60 years of the famous Gucci shoe. [Sadly both museums did not allow photos to be taken so these are taken from the websites]
Whilst there is stills lots to see in the beautiful city we ran out of time an energy, but I would love to return during winter so I could explore more and also see the city in another season.
