Florence, Italy

Cappuccino to start our day.

Since our airbnb home was very close to Duomo, we had the convenience of see the beauty during the day and night.

There was art in every corner you look. No wonder the city is noted for its culture, Renaissance art and architecture.

One of my favorites and I’d go back there just for another bite of Lampredotto.

We stumbled upon this place “Le Bonta Di Michele” and ended up buying cheese, meats, and wine for a picnic on the top of Piazzale Michelangelo. The owners were so friendly and patient with us. It was definitely fun trying to communicate with another with our language barriers.

While we’re at it, why not indulge in the moment by driving a Ferrari?

The San Lorenzo Market, leather market reminds of China’s night markets, except they are in business during the day time 9 am – 7 pm. We did end up buying leather gloves and belts as souvenirs that are useful.

Ponte Vecchio is the oldest bridge in Florence where there were shops since 13th century! This bridge over the Arno River was the only one that was not destructed by the German army during World War II.

Here we go again with the Gelato. Chilling on the side while looking at Santa Croce.

It was late and thank goodness for the Chinese place near our home. Otherwise I’d have to go to bed hungry or go on a hunt for places open on a late night for food.
