One of the Best Places to Eat in the World is in Florence, Italy

Florence

Florence to me is such a beautiful city.  She has a marvelous and striking appearance – her natural beauty is apparent in the morning, but after putting on her “makeup” at night, she becomes radiant.

Notable famous people who were born in Florence included Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.  Things you have to visit include the Uffizi Gallery, Galleria dell’Accademia and the Florence Cathedral.

People have suggested that the word Florence is derived from the Latin word, florere, which means blooming, which is pretty close to the Italian word for flower which is fiore.

Once again, this will mainly be a photo blog.  My itinerary that I have planned prior going to this trip will be at the bottom of the blog, right after all the photos.
