Don't Forget..., Florence: 12 reviews and 14 photos

Favorite thing: <p><i>Don't forget that Florence is the most important city of Tuscany, but
Tuscany itself is a region with hundreds of very important 'minor'
towns: Pisa, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Lucca, Pienza, Montepulciano,
Pistoia, Arezzo, Cortona, every one is worth a visit. I'll be dealing with some
of them in the Travelogues, with more pictures than I included for Florence

Fondest memory: <p>Walking at night, in the dark, along the ancient, narrow streets of the
Medieval centre: I feel like being in the XV century. And then, looking from the
<font color='#008000'><i>
Belvedere</i></font> on the opposite side of the Arno river, or from <i><font color='#008000'> San
Miniato</font></i>, just a
few minutes further along the same road, the centre of Florence, dominated by
the Brunelleschi's dome of Santa Maria del Fiore and Giotto's bell tower...
well, I feel something great in my spirit, a sense of fullness and peace that
takes me away from everyday life. </p>
