Florence, Italy.  I'm in love.




School kids going through the plaza!

The Ponte Vecchio (old bridge), built in 1345 originally
for butchers but changed to jewelry

Little Piggy Market
The people were amazing, the city is ancient and beautiful, and I want to go back.  I took over 300 photos.  We had wonderful tours with knowledgeable guides.  Stayed in the 4 Seasons Hotel which was amazing all in itself.  I loved walking the city, eating the wonderful food, drinking good wine, dunking bread in lovely olive oil.  I think Italian is the most lyrical language of all.  And we want to buy a villa and retire to Italy.  sigh.
