FLORENCE TRAVEL DIARY – DAY 1

Happy Easter everybody! 
Today I flew from Munich to Florence with my grandmother. We are staying in Florence until Thursday. Luckily we found an amazing last minute offer with flights and hotel. The flight and shuttle service was fine and we arrived in the city centre at 2pm. The bus ride from the airport to the central station took around 20min and one ticket costs 6€. The location of the hotel is amazing. All the landmarks are extremely close. Both of us have never been in Florence before so we walked around. At first we went to the duomo. 

 

This cathedral is so beautiful and impressive. There we found Edoardo il Gelato Biologico. This is a great place to buy delicious ice cream. Moreover it is a perfect spot to take a photo with the dome in the background. 

Next we walked to the famous market Mercato Centrale. Inside the building there are many places to have food and outside there is a another big market. There are several stands where you can buy bags, scarfs, jackets etc. I found such a pretty small bag and I got it for 15€ instead of 35€. Keep in mind that it is possible to talk about the price. Afterwards we visited Ponte Vecchio. Unfortunately it was so crowded that we decided to visit the bridge on another day. So we walked along the river to the Palazzo Vecchio.  

This square is so pretty and there are many restaurants with normal prices. There we had delicious pizza with a great view. Florence is a beautiful city and I am looking forward to the next days.
