"Room with a view" Florence by vanessadb

Florence Travel Guide: 5,247 reviews and 11,822 photos

I went home (Switzerland) on holidays for a week and my mother and I decided to head to Florence. Five days of bonding between mother and daughter and of course five days of intense and enriching Medici and Italian culture immersion.

BTW, this was our view from the apartment that was leant to us =))

It was not my first time in Florence but it certainly was my most enjoyable visit. Florence gave me what I needed and missed: Latin yet European flavors, beauty, architecture, history, culture, just to name a few. An intense yet relaxing week!

    I'm glad someone else picked Santa Maria Novella on their must-see Florence!
