florence

new city, new love affair. i loved the market (a bracelet for me and a bike jersey for michael!), the food (homemade pesto, yum!), and the panoramic views from the duomo and the piazzale michelangelo (check them out below!).
the basilica di santa maria del fiore, better known as the duomo.
the dome from the interior.
the bell tower of the duomo.
michael and i at the top of the duomo.
the basilica of santa maria novella from the duomo.
piazza della repubblica.
surveying the view from piazzale michelangelo. the hike was worth it!
ponte vecchio as seen from piazzale michelangelo.

  1. Love love love these photos! Definitely brings me back. My husband lived a block from the Duomo. Glad you made it to the Piazzale Michelangelo. Definitely the best view of the entire city. Lucky you!

  5. The gelato by the Trevi fountain was the best I've ever had! So many wonderful flavours, almost worth going back for that (and the view from the shop) alone.
