Florence, Italy

Florence was such a lovely city, full of beautiful buildings, bridges and statues. We ported in Livorno, Italy and took a 1 hour train ride into the city. We had a bike tour planned that took us to the major sites and a stop at the best gelato we had the entire trip. At this particular gelato place they offered nutella (not the ice cream, the REAL nutella) along with a scoop of any flavor you could dream up. It was heavenly. Still thinking about it today! We also stopped off at a hole in the wall restaurant, by recommendation, that served us the yummiest pasta we've ever had. The grandma was in the kitchen making it while her sons were at the counter running the place. What a fun experience that was. Here are some of my pictures (from the bike, ha!)
This first picture was taken from the bridge Ponte Vecchio. Behind be on the bridge, it is filled with stores that have been there since the 13th centery. The only stores allowed on the bridge are jewlery stores.
