I’ve long spoken of the beauty of Florence, and traveling back a second time only confirmed the belief I held after my first visit five years ago. I’m not the only one. For most of the year, Florence bulges with tourists and foreign students studying abroad. Whether you are inside the Uffizi Gallery, the Bargello, or just walking around this city of the Renaissance, beauty is everywhere.
I’ve already written about David through the eyes of a pigeon and viewing Florence from the best spot. So now, I’ll just let the photos do the talking.
