Florence

Being my third time in this city I knew what to expect this city feels quite small however its a magical pleasure walking the streets  before the summer heat kicks in.

There are many obvious attractions which include the Bargello and the Galleria dell A'ccade which houses some amazing works also The Bargello which also has a great mix of pieces and is housed in a old prison. Michelangelo the Galleria dell A'ccade  is home to Michelangelos famous sculpture David if you are on the search to see this famous piece of artwork in person. Also the Giardino Bardini and the Boboli Gardens which are a beautiful way to spend a afternoon walking off that long lunch.  

The Gucci Museum is well worth the trip its located in the Piazza della Signoria which has houses many pieces dating back to the 70's and beyond. After getting getting your fashion hit grab a apertivo at my favourite bar across from the museum. Its called Caffe Rivoire which is great for a coffee or afternoon apertivo.

The Piazza del Duomo is a great spot to get views across the city, the church itself is free if you want to climb the duomo it will be a long wait unless you head their first thing in the morning book tickets in advance. The church bell is also worth the climb and has just as great views also.
