We originally booked a budget 2 bedroom apartment but on arrival were upgraded. Very impressive suite. Only problem with being right next to the duomo - lots of noise. Unfortunately, even with the windows closed, the noise from the crowds could be heard despite being on the third floor

... It was the only of the city’s bridges to be saved from destruction during WWII. We watched the sunset alongside here on our first night, and looked in several of the famous jewellery shops housed along the bridge hoping to find wedding rings, but without any luck. It would have been cool to buy our wedding rings on Ponte Vechhio, but it wasn’t meant to be.

It was so beautiful. The lights were golden, and there were so many churches ...
... cities lay several shadowed snow fields that had yet to melt. It was simply a reminder that winter still has a few weeks remaining in Europe, too. But once I disembarked from the train, the trek between the railway station and my hotel brought me directly past Florence's chief triple landmarks: <ul><li>The cathedral (or the<i> Duomo</i>, on which construction began in 1296)</li><li>The baptistry, (or the <i>Battistero di San ...

I met Steve and 3 other people from our program at the top of Piazzale Michelangelo at 5:30 a.m. to watch the sun rise from behind the mountains and kiss the top of the buildings of Florence. It was stunning. As the sun broke through the clouds I was able to watch an ...
