Tuscany Things to Do: 208 reviews and 393 photos
Even beauty, when in inadequate doses, can be intoxicating. The concentration of sublime pieces of art in Florence requires thus a particular assimilation effort. Without a proper digestion of the exceptional magnitude of the sensorial perceptions, the tourist risks feeling disappointed in Florence. Or otherwise overwhelmed, which is far worse.
When I am Florence, I try to abstract myself from reality, to escape the temporal dimension and follow a timeless pace, undisturbed by the crowds and the aesthetics; the lines and the creativity, the tackiness and the exquisiteness. Unluckily, my attempts always fail.
