“Aerial view Florence”
“The Ponte Vecchio”
Florence remains one of the places that stayed close to heart. Did this as a solo trip whilst visiting a friend who was quite busy during the times I was there – best experiences ever as I dared to discover without waiting for someone else to make the trip. Best things to do – was grading a gelato whilst walking around the city during the mornings ( yes you read right – mornings with some gelato) Then there was the olive oil tasting paired with wine. So what are you waiting for – go dare to discover.!
