The four days were quite intense with visiting many beautiful Renaissance villas by Ruccellai, Vasari, Michelangelo and much more (an architecture guide is coming up). Of course, we had to do some tourist sights as well.
Here are 5 places to visit in Florence.
1. Enjoy the view from the cupola of Santa Maria del Fiore
2. A walk through Giardino Bardini
3. The sunset from San Miniato al Monte & Piazzale Michelangelo
for a delicious foccaccia (apparently one of the best in town) and then climb up the hill to enjoy the evening sun from Piazzale Michelangelo. Sounds good!
4. A stroll through Giardini di Boboli & Palazzo Pitti
5. A visit of Santa Croce & drinks in the evening
Santa Croce is located in the centre and is one more beautiful church you have to visit. Italian churches are just incredible and we couldn’t stop thinking how people did it? Think of Michelange, who spent 70 years of his live painting churches, creating art and being architect as well, is unthinkable these days.
Towards the end of the day we let the evening fade away with some cool beers and pizza to go on the square in front of Santa Croce. Apparently, it is one of the places where you meet for some drinks in the evening. I quite miss this Italian way of living in Munich. One more great spot for drinks at night is San Spirito.
