florence | day and night.

Our next stop on the Italian voyage was Florence. I quickly realized why this charming city is such a traveler's favorite in Tuscany. Florence peaked in the Renaissance and hasn't come down since. We spent most every day simply wandering the streets and admiring the art + architecture, gelato in hand. 


{The city revolves around the main centre: Duomo, Baptistry and Campanile.}

{Pleasant greeting each morning.}

{Chicness in a castle.}

{Gelato on every corner.}

{The result of a very difficult flavor decision: Tiramisu.}

{After a dauntingly narrow and terrifying climb to the top of the Duomo, the view was worth it.} 

{The Boboli Gardens}

{Ponte Vecchio.}

{A very pleasant surprise: our rented apartment had a rooftop terrace with a breathtaking 360 view.}

{Goodnight Florence.}
