Interrail Diary - Florence

Next Stop in Italy was Florence, we didn’t have long in Florence but we wanted to fit it in even if it was only a very short time! The night we got there we went straight out for tea and ate in a little Italian, so much pasta! We then stumbled upon a big parade at the Basilica, which was interesting to see, we still aren’t sure what it was actually for but the city was bursting with people! Something I also didn’t know was that fashion week was just finishing in the city so this meant different fashion events going on around the centre. There was a lovely exhibition at the Gucci Museum, where they projected a video onto the building whilst playing music, so this was nice to find. There was also a vintage car show on showcasing lots of different classic cars.

The following day we got up early and tried to cram as much in as we could, we went to the top of the Duomo, which provided us with amazing views over Florence, we went to the top of the tallest building in every city so we couldn’t miss out in Florence! We also went to the top of the Bell tower which wasn’t as high but again amazing views and an interest walk up the both of them. We wandered around the city and if you’re looking for the best food in Florence go to All Antico Vinaio, the sandwiches here are amazing and they are huge, at only 5 euros each! I can't wait to go and visit Florence again as it was a lovely city especially in the sun,
