The Rest of Florence

With half days Friday and Monday bracketing the weekend we spent about 3 days in Florence. It was enough time to see most of what Florence has to offer the tourist. I provided you a taste of my first day in Florence, so here’s an illustration of the rest of my time in my favorite Italian city, so far (at this point only Rome can dethrone it, at least with this trip).

That’s the best of Florence.  For anybody with the slightest interest in art or architecture Florence is a must see city.  Plan to spend at least three days if you want to really experience what Florence has to offer.  Check back tomorrow for the first day of Rome.
