Weekend In Florence

 Florence, Italy is one of my favourite European cities. I love it because it has everything from the religious, art, culture, culinary, lots of vino, fashion, leather, shoes and shopping in a compact city. Florence is easy to explore and discover as it is a walking city. It is a one and a half hour travel from Rome via the speed train then take the bus to either the famous Duomo or start the day with a visit to the Accademia Gallery to see the majestic David by Michelangelo plus his unfinished work, the Prisoners.  Florence is also an Art City as one can discover art all over the city from the artworks in the cathedrals like the Duomo and the Santa Croce to the famous Uffizi Gallery. There are also many statues on display at my favourite Piazza della Signoria. Florence is also a city of leather as there are many leather shops all around the city that we even smelled the leather as we walked along its narrow streets. Before my trip, I read Dan Brown's  Inferno which was set in Florence. In the action, mystery and thrilling book, Dan Brown wrote so many secrets and stories about the city of Florence. I learnt about the Vasari corridor, Boboli Gardens, the art works of Italian painter Vasari and secrets about the Medici family. I can't wait for the movie to come out.
