"Henrik's Florence-page" Florence by Henrik_rrb

Florence Travel Guide: 5,286 reviews and 12,068 photos

Everytime my friends asks me about Florence I say "Don't go there! There are soooo many tourists that it's not worth it!".

Well... It's not totally true... There are sooo many tourists, but Florence is still worth a visit.
But I believe that if I at least makes my friends don't go there, there will be some less tourists when I go there myself... :)

So, don't tell anyone, but Florence is really a fantastic city!

The party-city

With so many tourists and foreign students in the city it's not strange that Florence, according to me, is one of the best party cities ever!
Will write more about this later, when I get some spare time, but for now I just put up some photos from my last trip here.

Me and my brother went with two other Swedish guys to Maracana, the Brazilian nightclub.

And yes, there were some party alright... :)

Maracana starts as a restaurant, where I definately recommend you to try to meat buffe!
To the dinner there is a dance show, and after midnight the place change into a nightclub.

The photo shows me and Mikael, just moments after the night club started...

And... this photo shows me and Mikael "a bit" later during the evening... ;)
Don't think heineken and corona was such a good mix though...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The city itself, the party
  • Cons:More people speaking english than italian there...
  • In a nutshell:Still - go there!

    Thanks for the beautiful picture, Henrik. My son just informed me that he got engaged to be married last night at sunset at the Piazalle Michelangelo. Your photo brought me to the time and place! Thanks!

    I wanted to see your Ponte Vecchio pic again. I hope I can get there in '06. It's a dream & a longshot, but miracles do happen sometimes... Yes, my dream came true to see Florence in '06. Glad you got some Rio flavor in Firenze! :)
