My Week in Florence

Last year I took the most amazing trip of my life to the beautiful Florence, Italy.  I would absolutely love to go back, and plan to do so when I study abroad in Europe in two years. 

I was blown away by the breathtaking art, food, architecture, and people of Florence. If anyone is wondering where in Europe to visit, I HIGHLY recommend the city of Florence.  It was so different from any city in America.  Streets were made for actual pedestrians rather than the countless cars that take over roads in America.  It was a fantastic vacation and I cannot wait to go back!

Here are some pictures from my trip – I hope you guys enjoy!

Like come on!  This doesn’t even look real. It is such a ginormous and incredible (not to mention old!) piece of architecture that just blows my mind every time I think about it.

This is the beautiful river that runs through the city.  I literally just sat here in peace for an hour.

And of course – FOOD.  This is just one of the many unbelievable meals I ate in Italy.  If you like pasta in America (which let’s face it, who doesn’t?!) just wait until you taste the fresh spaghetti in Florence.

A crazy beautiful piece of art in a cool museum…I really don’t know anything about art but I thought this was just awesome.

Wish I knew who this was a statue of! 

The one dessert I had that wasn’t gelato..which I had every night! This was at a place where we could make our own little ice cream bar and it was amazing. Like everything else I ate there. 

And finally: the unbelievable Duomo. This was so massive and beautiful that I cannot even describe it.

Going to Florence was an absolutely life-changing experience and I would recommend it to everyone who likes food and culture.  I am so excited to go back to this beautiful city and to explore other parts of Europe!
Question: Have any of you ever traveled to Europe? If so, what was your favorite city and why?
