Visit Italy: The Sights of Florence

Our hosts took us to Florence for the day to tour the city.

It was even more magical than I ever could have imagined.

It was just incredible to roam the city and be enveloped in such amazing history, architecture, culture, and art.   

We walked the Ponte Vecchio (medieval stone bridge), viewed the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, saw the golden doors of the Gates of Paradise, and so much more.

At every turn there seemed to be significant sculptures and intricate works of art.

It was quite crowded, as international travel had just recently opened up when we visited, and lines were long for several paid attractions.  We didn't go into any paid attractions, but just roaming the city and perusing the various buildings and other free venues was a fabulous experience.
