Clear blue skies highlighting the Palazzo Vecchio on June 26 as we walk to our apartment.
The gelato case--always a welcome sight in the Tuscan heat. We averaged one cone or a cup a week each! (I'll be thinking about that at the gym in July!)
Iron anthropomorphic horse ties left from the Renaissance scatter Florence. This example comes from behind the Palazzo Vecchio.
One of my favorite plates of pasta in Florence--spicy tomato pesto over penne at Borgo Antico, a first day tradition, which we always repeat several times each trip, coupled with a house red wine and a Greek salad. (Love the plate! Even with the giant chip out of it the plate sets off the food dramatically.)
Just as Dave noted in his recent post, it is these views of the Duomo that I most often think of when remembering the experience of Florence. These tantalizing slices of a vista which promises to be amazing, beautiful and awe-inspiring and always is, at least to me
With fond memories and a happy heart we say Arrividerci, Firenze (until next time)!
