Seen in Florence

Florence, Italy

Interested in a Music and Markets Tour? We’d love to hear from you!  Join us on a summer tour on the Amalfi Coast, in Provence, or in Amsterdam/Belgium

Inside and out, our eyes are charmed with beauty as we enjoy this short stop in Florence. From open-air art on Piazza Signoria,

to a frescoed boutique,

once a prince’s palazzo,

to quirky street art reminding us of those Florentine floods (‘L’arte Sa Nuotare,’ or ‘Art Knows how to Swim’ by a mysterious figure known only as ‘Blub’), we take in the vistas.

Here, flood markers from 1966 (above) and 1333, the oldest one in town. Interestingly, both of these damaging floods occurred on November 4!

We stroll by unique fountain on a corner of Piazza Santissima Annunciata,

and a design-your-own handmade shoe boutique,

before reveling in one-more glorious sunset

before winging our way west. Ciao, Florence – we’ll be back as soon as we can!
