Bella Italia

Florence was a fabulous experience as ever, but absolutely heaving with tourists. A great place for a wee break in the sun even so. I can recommend our hotel, very close to the centre but very quiet, especially at the back of the hotel where we had an impressive view of the Santa Croce and Duomo.

Giardino di Boboli

Prohibitively expensive antique shops, shame.

Martini (Iconic sign in distance)

and Oh so beautiful churches


  1. Always happy to visit Italy - love the ambience - but have never managed to get to Giardino di Boboli so far.
    Glad you had a wonderful trip.

  2. What an interesting peep at Florence, especially the antiques shop!
