We had both been there already, but Florence never disappoints, even if it is the millionth time one visits. It's a very elegant city, beauty is to be found at every corner, and people are really kind and polite - not to mention the food!
Here are the pictures...
This is the cloister of the San Lorenzo church. I love cloisters - they give such a paceful feeling, they seem to me the perfect place to read or meditate - or simply relax.
What you see when you enter the square where both the Duomo and the Battistero are located. Isn't it breathtaking?).
Inside the Battistero...
A view of Ponte Vecchio. All the stores which line the bridge are jewellery stores. So sparkly!
Had to take a picture of the food!
The view from out hotel room. This is the Santa Maria Novella church. The hotel was in an ancient palace (about 1400, if I recall correctly), and if you ever go to Florence, I'll give you the address - I highly reccommend it!
Finally, the view from above: we went to the San Miniato al Monte church, and this is the view. The church is a beautiful example of romanic style, and well worth the visit!
