Travel Therapy: Florence, Italy (Firenze)

I was in Rome last year, and with Florence only an hour away by train, my friend and I decided to take a day trip there. My time in Florence was chilled and although I didn't get to do much, I was able to soak in some of the charm of the beautiful city. I most definitely have to go back to Florence. Next time I visit, I'll plan to spend a few days and enjoy all the wonders the city has to offer. But until then I'll relieve the memory through these pictures.
The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore( Il Duomo di Firenze/ Florence Cathedral)

Ankara print clad mannequins and visual designs at the luxury store, Luisa Via Roma 
Leather goods at the street market





Don't you just love the yellow walls with the blue accents?
I was gobsmacked by this talented street artist
Aren't these street restaurants amazing?

Love it, some parts of Florence look so majestic and some other parts in your photos remind me of an old town.

Amazing pics! I've been to Florence myself a couple of months ago and it blew me away. The architecture is absolutely unique.

I cannot wait to do Italy. Rome, Florence, all of it. I feel like I'd have to commit a good amount of time to it.

Florence is probably one of my favorite places. we stopped there when we were on our honeymoon and we said when we retire and make the big bucks, we shall buy a vacation home there.
