Florence - A better story

A travel blog entry by bbordignon


Well, I think we figured out Florence and it is similar to other popular cities in Europe. The best sight seeing happens early in the morning (before the crowds) and the best food is away from the main monuments and attractions. We found some great shops and bars away from the hustle and bustle and met some great people. Caffe Degli Innocenti at …

... headed back to the Acadamia. We spent as much time with David as we could. We closed down the museum. He is pretty fantastic and tall. I would strongly recommend you stop by for a visit if you are in the area.

We left David and headed for dinner. We ended up in a pizza/pasta joint called the Yellow Bar. It was delicious. The restaurant touts their own homemade pasta and I want more of it. We ate our dinner and then headed out for… guessed it: Gelato! Doug had ...
