There’s something special about revisiting a place. From landmarks you didn’t see to overlooking the small street corners, experiencing a destination should be done more than once. You get to appericate the location more.
As my friends and I started walking/exploring, we eventually stumble across this river. Although I saw this river in my last trip here, I did not realize the name of it. Nor, did I noticed this is Florence main artery. It’s pipeline to the sea. Just imagine the boats that sailed here during the Middle ages in Florence’s prime. The sight must had been amazing. Picture the colors of the sails and caragos that merchants were bringing from Pisa. Sometimes I wish I had a time machine, that would be some next level of sightseeing.
After some time, we got to the Florence dome. Probably my favorite landmark in all of Italy. The appearance just attracts me. The patterns and colors always makes my imagination run wild. Everytime I see this, I keep thinking of the Renaissance. Again, I truly wish there was a time machine somewhere. Maybe I could borrow it for some time (Yes, that was a horribly executed pun).
Being here with just adults is liberating. You do not have to be constantly looking to see where the child ran off to. There’s a level of stress that is gone. I can see why old couples tend to travel the world together. There’s a higher level of being in the moment you get without having to overlook someone else. I usually travel alone or with friends, so this is the only place I really had to babysit while traveling. The comparison of the two is good to know before jumping into parenthood. I know I will still travel; however, it would be more for educating my children about the world.
Once again, Florence is a place I really enjoyed. Being reintroduced to Florence has made me appericate the beauty of this city. There’s so much history here. It’s hard not to get lost in the historic sites. Truly a destination for people who love history.

Have you ever seen the movie “Midnight in Paris”? I loved the scenes where Owen Wilson’s character ran into famous painters from the past just hanging out drinking and sharing.
No, but I will defintely watch it this weekend though. That is something i would love to do! Well at least, just to see how people were like. Thank you for the suggestion 🙂
One of my favourite places in the world. The city is beautiful, the countryside around it even better. But it might be the wine talking..
Florence is one of two places I’ve always wanted to visit, it’s slightly odd because I think my attraction came about because of the name, Florence/Firenze, it sounds so lyrical. The cathedral has to be one of the most beautiful buildings in the world, simply amazing.
This post is a reinforcement for my lust to visit this city…fingers crossed
Yes it really is 🙂
I appreciated your tour of Florence with your insights and sharing the beautiful photography of Hugo Morel.
