day 1 – travel journal – firenze, italy arrival

Day 1: We arrived in Florence city center late Sunday afternoon to torrential downpour and thunder storm and after checking into our hotel, decided to immediately tour the city on foot, just long enough to wean ourselves from the jet lag.

Along the way and in between the downpour, we experienced the following:

Waffle sandwich filled with hot nutella – yummy

A peak of the Duomo

A taste of Firenze chocolat and nugats

Ornate architecture

Breath taking view of ponte vecchio with a film scene on the lawn

A canteloupe gelato break Рa must 

Fountains and statues in piazza della signoria
