Florence, Italy: 6 Years Later – Day 2

If you missed my day 1 post you can read it here.

On Saturday we woke up and had a plan for the day so we wouldn’t miss any of the important stops (did you think I didn’t have a plan…c’mon you know me by now).

The Plan.

1. San Lorenzo Market

Inside the market there are fresh fruit/veggie stands, butchers, fish shops, and that sort of thing.  Outside the market are leather stands and little souvenirs.

2. Accademia Gallery to see The David

We snuck a video of the statue but obviously I’m not putting it up here.  The David was so beautiful and very cool to see in person.

3. Lunch for Jon

Pizza of course.  Fun/sickening Fact: We had pizza with every meal over the weekend.

4. Santa Croce

There was a chocolate market in front of the church so we walked around and tasted everything.

5. Lunch for Ashley

Vegetarian sandwich which was heaven.  Funny story: I was waiting for my sandwich to be made and 5 American girls walk in and start chatting it up with the guy behind the counter.  I was intrigued so I had to talk to the girls.  Turns out they were studying abroad in Florence and eat lunch there everyday.  I was so jealous that they were studying abroad and still in college but it was good to see that Americans still take over Florence every spring and go to the same places.

6. Pitti Palace

7. Piazzale Michelangelo

The most gorgeous view of Florence.

8. Glass of wine outside

9. Nap time

10. Dinner at Il Ghibellini

 

We licked our plates clean!

Our last day in Italy was spent in Pisa so you’ll hear about that next.
