Bella Firenze nelle foto

Hopefully the title of this post translates as Beautiful Florence in photographs.

Even though I didn’t love Florence this time round, I still believe it is an incredibly beautiful city. The red roof tops, the marble facade of Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto’s campanile plus the incredible amount of Renaissance art and architecture packed into the relatively small city. There’s also the famous Ponte Vecchio, the gorgeous views from Piazzale Michaelangelo and the beautiful Boboli Gardens to appreciate. There’s not an ugly aspect to this city (besides the sheer volume of tourists in peak season!).

They say a picture speaks a thousand words so I thought I’d let the beauty speak for itself. Here’s a selection of my photos celebrating the gorgeousness of Bella Firenze!
