Florence, Italy

Hello fans, the weather in Sydney has been cold and wet, so I haven’t had a chance to get outdoors to take some new pictures. I decided to browse through some images from past Travels in Europe again and today I chose to share some scenery from Florence in Italy.

This shot below was taken from our hotel window, I couldn’t get enough of Italy’s historic buildings.

Having spent a month in Italy, without fail everyday we started our lunch and dinners with some Italian bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar (Gelato was also a daily treat).

You can’t go to Florence without visiting the church of Santa Maria del Fiore. This is the bell Tower that we conquered.

The following two images were taken from the bell tower towards the rest of the cathedral and the drop if you happened to slip.

The following pictures are of Ponte Vecchio. This was Florence’s first bridge built across the Arno River in 1935. It is the only surviving bridge from Florence’s medieval days. All others were destroyed in World War II.

I hope you enjoyed my random selection of images from my travels in Florence. Hopefully the weather clears up and I can get out and about to get some new pictures.

    We were in Florence about 14 years ago on our honeymoon. Those pictures bring back so many memories. The Ponte Vecchio had some great gelato. Hell everywhere had great gelato. I have been wanted to go back so badly. I would love to go back to pre euro times also. What was Italy thinking to join that mess.

      I’m glad those images bought you back some memories, they bought me back some too just going through them looking for something to post. One day I will return….I said that the first time and I did, so I’ll say it again….hopefully things have settled by then.

  3. great shots from the big F! I did a little Venice today on my blog 🙂
