We had 1.5 jam-packed days in Florence and soaked up every moment! We enjoyed Renaissance masterpieces in the Uffizi Gallery, which houses Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and da Vinci’s “Annunciation,” and we visited the Galleria dell’Accademia, where we saw Michelangelo’s “David.” We also enjoyed visiting the incredible Duomo with its famous dome designed by Brunelleschi. And we met up with my lovely friend, Sasha, who took us to her favorite gelatería in the city. I think it was by far the best gelato we had in Italy. We walked to the beautiful Ponte Vecchio bridge as the sun set, and Sasha pointed out various historical highlights as we walked. Spending time with Sasha was a treat! Florence is a dream and we could have spent much more time here.










    • Hi Mary! So great to hear from you. 🙂 ❤ I actually can't remember the name of the gelatería off the top of my head, but I did write it down–it's in my journal that I don't have with me right now. I will check and let you know when I get back to Boston 🙂 😉
