Piazza della Signoria & Ponte Vecchio
Piazza della Signoria - Florence's political hub since the 14th century......and one of Florence's must-see classics. The square is also home to various other beautiful buildings - including the significant Tribunale della Mercanzia - as well as a number of stunning statues: from Cellini's 'Perseus with the Head of Medusa'.
Ponte Vecchio - Beautiful, bustling medieval bridge
Although originally home to butchers & fishmongers, the bridge's shops were occupied by goldsmiths in the late 16th century - and these remain to this day. It is now one of the city's best places to find expensive jewelry, original artworks & tacky souvenirs.....
Ponte Vecchio in the evening.......
@Borgo San Lorenzo, we had Margherita Pizza,
Left - Gnocchi Sorrenti, Middle - Pici Alla Fioren & Mochiatto
Right - The Porcellino Fountain, a popular tradition has it that touching the snout of the boar will bring good fortune
I love this cold Fusilli Pesto salad!
Enjoying my Pilsner on my last evening in Florence.....
