A Photo Tour to Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence City, Italy
Italy is such an awesome destination. Some places don’t need a description of their beauty and the photographs say it all. Florence is one such destination and the more I share the less it will be. I will be publishing series of photo tour to Italy and here is my first one.
TOUR TO ITALY SERIES ONE
A day in Florence City!
Tuscany is the beautiful region on Italy’s west coast, on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The capital of this region is known as Florence, also called as Firenze. Firenze is also known as “La Dolce Vita”…The Good Life! The beautiful architecture by Michelangelo and paintings by Giorgio Vasari makes this a must visit Italian destination.
If you reach one of the most appreciated and best-rated destinations Florence you need to explore the city for at least a week.
More on this city in my blog later but here’s a photo tour to one of the most important visits to the Piazzale Michelangelo.
Once you settle in Florence, you can easily take a bus or bike or car and drive uphill to the Piazzale.
