I just returned from visiting Rome, Florence, Lake Como, and Paris. If I had to choose which city was my favorite I would choose Florence. I loved visiting Pitti Palace, learning to make pizza at a pizzeria, and eating delicious gelato! The scenery in Florence was jaw dropping and the weather was beautiful. From our room at the Portrait hotel, we had the most spectacular view of the Pontevecchio Bridge and the Arno River. One of my favorite things about Florence was that we were able to walk everywhere. Our tour guide Angela, showed us, The Academia where we saw the Statue of David, The Duomo which was a very large church with a giant dome, the Leather School, and Mosaic Artists. I also enjoyed the great shops! I loved visiting Florence and I hope to visit again soon.
