Florence, Italy


When you walk around Florence it feels like you went back 500 years in time. Florence was were Renaissance was born. So a great part of its architecture and attractions maintain the style of that time. But those aren’t the only things that are noticeable: the great gastronomy and the characteristic italian people are also very present over there.

Here we stayed again on a camping site. We lost in comfort, but gained in location. It was right next to Piazzale Michelangelo, from where you have the best view of the city. Here goes some of the pics we took on the three days we stayed in Florence.

Como em muitas cidades italianas, as Vespas dominam o trânsito.

Like in many other italian cities, the vespas are all around.

As bicicletas, no entanto, também são muito utilizadas.

Bicycles are also very popular.

Sem restrição de idade. =)

Without any age restriction. :)

A partir da Piazzale Michelangelo, ao lado de onde nos hospedamos, pode-se ver toda a cidade.

From Piazzale Michelangelo, next to where we were staying, you can see the whole city.

Hora do descanso. Momento para ler um jornal...

Time for a break. The perfect moment to catch up on the news…

...ou fumar um charuto e observar o movimento.

…or to smoke a cigar and just watch people go by.

Next post will still be about Italy: we’ll show the places we’ve been to in Rome! See you then! 🙂

So, what do you think ?
