Florence Part I.

Florence is one of the most magical cities in Italy, impressive when Venice, Pisa and Rome are in that mix. Some think of Florence as the more austere sibling of the great Italian cities, but I have only ever enjoyed itโ€™s light, relaxed and carefree atmosphere. A place to have adventures, open your mind and gain some happy pounds. The history of this city bombards you everywhere, whether you are a history and art buff, keen shopper or a foodie there are historical places for everyone to visit. Part II here.
