Our 4th day in Italy was spent in Florence (the first three were spent in Rome). We took an early train from Rome and got to the Tuscan capital way before noon. We only spent one night here but I really wish we had a longer stay. It’s not as crazy touristy and it’s just so picturesque.
You know that movie Under the Tuscan Sun with Diane Lane? Where her character went on vacation in Tuscany and just decided to impulsively buy a decrepit villa? I GET IT. It’s so freaking beautiful that I would consider buying a rotting villa to move here – never mind the fact that I don’t speak a lick of Italian.
In the words of the iconic and equally materialistic Carrie Bradshaw, “I couldn’t understand a word she was saying, but I felt I had in my possession all the Italian I’d ever need to know: Dolce, Dolce, Dolce.”
