|You wonder what this little giftbox is in the washroom?|
|lovely view of Florence from the top - gorgeous at night|
Next we went searching for a restaurant recommended to us by our tour guide from Bologna.
Il Porcupino is almost back at the train station. Pretty good food.
|love these deep fried zucchini blossoms|
|ravioli - okay but not the best|
|yum to parmesan and beef carpaccio|
|awesome carousel at night|
He'd seen these lampredetto tripe sandwiches on Food Network and he was not disappointed.
|one of his favourite things the whole trip|
One of the biggest draws for Florence was seeing the Galileo Museum. My husband is definitely not a science geek but he has a thing for Galileo. Lucky for him the museum opened the week before we arrived. Beautiful, bright, clean, modern, and virtually empty - awesome!
|Galileo's telescopes - helping to prove the Earth was round|
|beautiful view of Florence rooftops|
|tourists and locals|
|Ponte Vecchio - site of heated E&B kiss from UoEM|
|yummy liver pate|
That night we also set out on a hair raising adventure of finding the best gelato in the world. I don't know why it seems that every time we do this I end up navigating us through dark dank alleys. But we did find it!
Vivoli Gelato in Florence - I thought it was the best of the trip. My husband differs but I can't wait to go back. There's no one for blocks and it's not the best neighbourhood and this place is hopping! Full of tourists and locals.
Walking home we pass may bars and everyone is glued to watching the World Cup. The universal language of sports and alcohol together.
