Four Fantastic Days in Florence

My Adventure
Hello Everyone! If you haven’t read my previous blog (Seven Spectacular Days in Rome), check that out before reading this.

My family and I left in the morning from Rome, and arrived in Florence at around noon. The weather was beautiful, and with so much history in Florence, and so little time to see everything we made the best of our time. We went from the train station to our hotel near central Florence. After being on a train for the whole morning, we left our hotel in search for a place to eat. Walking around in the middle of the day was amazing. There were so many things going on, and the architecture of the buildings was amazing to experience firsthand after seeing it so many times in pictures. After finding a good place to eat lunch, we continued walked around Florence. We found the Duomo, and some of the other buildings that we would be going into on a later date with our tour guide. After exploring for a few hours, we found a place to eat dinner, and went to bed.

The next morning, we woke up early because we had to meet our tour guide outside of our hotel. We explored museums and other well known places in Florence such as the Duomo. Our tour guide showed us different churches and houses of historical figures in Florence’s past. After exploring Florence, for the morning, we went to the most recommended place to eat in Florence, where I had the best lunch of my entire vacation. After lunch, we got some gelato, and went through the local marketplace to find items for friends and family. We spent the rest of our day at the marketplace, and after finding a local restaurant to eat, we went to bed early after a busy day. 

We slept in the next morning, but as soon as we were ready to go, we started exploring some parts of Florence that we hadn’t seen the day before. One of the things that we visited was the Plazzo Vecchio museum, which took up our morning, but informed us even more about the history of Florence. After that we got a quick lunch so that we could make the most of our last day in Florence. We explored the town a little bit more, and ended our day at Santa Croche, which was an amazing church in the middle of Florence. On our way back to the hotel, we stopped at a restaurant for dinner, and went through the local market. We stayed up late that evening, and went to bed with the excitement of traveling to Venice the next day.
