Our journey in the sunny Florence has not yet ended! You have a lot to see and do! You just can not get bored in Florence.
Make sure you get to the key points of the belvedere to admire the beauty of the city.
Michelangelo Square is one of the places where you can admire the magic of this place. The beauty of the city bathed by the sun’s rays will surely charm you. Near this place you will find the San Miniato de Monte church, which is one of the most beautiful Romanesque structures in Tuscany and one of the most picturesque churches in Italy.
Pretty, is not it?
If you are still in Florence, you should see the Belvedere Fortress called Fortezza di Santa Maria in San Giorgio del Belvedere. It was built at the order of Grand Duke Ferdinando I de Medici, between 1590 and 1595. The fortress is located in the southern hills of Arno River and on the highest hill of the Boboli gardens. Find the gong from the fortress and make yourself heard! <3

If you love gold jewelery, Ponte Vecchio is the perfect place for you! The old bridge, which keeps the passers-by steps for so many decades, is lined with luxurious gold jewelry shops and not only. Semi-precious stones, luxury watches and necklaces of rapacious beauty, you can find them here!
From here, from Ponte Vecchio, go to Ponte alla Carraia and look for the arrow from the picture below on the railing. Go down the riverbed and make a unique picture here! In 2017, on the banks of the River Arno was an exhibition of animals and supernatural beings, made entirely of wood.
Florence is full of churches that you must see. They have an impressive architecture and each building offers a special feeling. You will find your peace here definitely! The Church of S. Spirito, S. Stefano, S. Felicita, S Trinita, S Remigio and S. Salvatore in Ognissanti are some of the many churches worth visiting.
And as the Tuscany area is renowned for its extraordinary tasty food and special wines, the holiday is not complete without tasting their absolutely delicious dishes! Try the Chianti wine that is currently one of the most popular red wines. Chianti wine takes its name from the region in which it is made. There are two variants, Chianti and Chianti Classico. The difference between the two is that Chianti Classico wine is considered to be a bit refined than Chianti. What to expect from this classic Italian wine? In both variants of Chianti, you can expect a very rustic wine, rich in tannins, with smell and taste that reminds of cherries and strawberries. Wine has a high acidity, which makes it very good with food. You must try pizza and pasta, the Italians are famous for them! In most locations you also find them gluten-free. And how the city is always sunny, spoil yourself with a delicious ice cream! It will be hard for you to choose a place to buy ice cream, all the showcases are decorated in the most delicious way.
Now that you have all the information, take your suitcase and make your luggage! I recommend you to lose yourself through the romantic air streets, discreetly illuminated by the lanterns on the warm nights. Buildings bathed in sunlight and special architecture will disconnect you and bring you happiness!
Ahh .. it was about to forget! The best thing about Florence is the wild boar! Find the fountain that portrays a wild boar. Caress the wild boar muzzle, put a coin in his mouth, then let it fall. The legend says that if it falls from the first try in the grille, you will return to Florence and the wild boar will bring you luck!
To me, it fell out of the first try!
I wish you a nice holiday too! : *
