For some people, Florence is love at first sight – classic Renaissance architecture, world-class art masterpeices, incredible Tuscan food, and fabulous Italian fashion.
But for us on our first visit several years ago … not so much. As my teenage nieces would say – Epic Fail!
There was a reason. We’d been living in London for 3 years, working long days to advance our careers … and we were burned out. Seriously fried. We just weren’t ready for the energy field that is Florence. What we needed was a cabin in the woods (or a padded cell) at that time in our lives – not Florence.
So when we were planning our recent RTW we knew we had to give Florence a second chance … and we’re so glad we did. We fell for her charms.
And when we fall … we fall hard.
This Friday we’ll launch this summer’s “Weekends in Florence Series” – revisiting a delightful stop on our recent Round-the-World trip. Join us to find out why we fell for Florence the second time around.
See you then,
