The day we spent in Florence was such as beautiful day. We woke up a bit early but it was worth the 4 hours trip to Florence. In the morning we made a rest stop. The tour leader suggested for us to try the espresso, so I did, it was a very good italian espresso. Even though it was a very small cup of espresso it was very rich and flavorful. At the same time I don’t think that would work in America since most things come in big sizes.
Once we arrive in Florence we walked along the river. There was a beautiful view of the city of florence for the river and we also saw several artist painting from the port. The city of florence is a very old city were the renaissance started at. We saw the tombs of Galileo, Michelangelo, Donatello and a statue dedicated to Dante. The city is very pedestrian friendly, the center of city is all for pedestrian walk. Now it is easier for me to see how ideas spread in florence because it is so centralized and it also is built for social gatherings, such as lots of coffee shop, restaurants and most importantly during that time churches.
Lunch was very good. We ate original Italian pizza, it truly was the best pizza I’ve ever tried. The restaurant seemed to be old but at the same time the service was good and the food was amazing. After the lunch we visited the Acamedia, in there we saw the statue of David sculpted by Michel Angelo. The statue of David is truly a masterpiece, first because of its dimensions and seconds because of its details. To finish the day we enjoy the italian country side.
