After going through my Florence pictures, I realized I had very little pictures of food. We ate very well on this trip and I thought I had documented every tasty meal, but apparently I did not.
I guess with all there is to do in Florence I was either too busy or too exhausted to take pictures of food.
And why would I have time after visiting Santo Spirito, the church where the young Michelangelo self-taught himself anatomy using the corpses from the hospital
Or walking the Oltrarno quarter where artisans (here a shoemaker) carry on their families' centuries-old traditions.
Maybe I was too busy wondering through small churches with frescoes that are hundreds and hundreds of years old, which were created over other frescoes that are even older.
We walked past the Duomo a hundred times I think...
At all hours of the day.
Same with Piazza della Signoria.
We did make time for some gelato though. I think the gelato in Florence is the best that I have had, and we had it a lot!
We stopped at this restaurant on the bridge and I did manage to get a picture of the sign.
Next stop: Liguria, aka The Italian Riviera
