The Adoration of the magi by Leonardo da Vinci has been on display this summer at the Uffizi gallery in Florence. I was able see it in the last few days before the exhibit ended.
On a warm summer evening what could be nicer than a stroll around Florence? Whether you like to absorb some culture, like Signore Aleghieri Dante’s statue. in Piazza Santa Croce,
or, find a delicious and authentic meal in the Mercato Centrale.
then you could catch a bus up to Piazzale Michelangelo, join the crowds and watch the sun go down.
If you’re really lucky there might be a gelatto festival taking place!
Now, if I was going to the Piazzale again,I’d walk back down the hill instead of waiting ages for a bus, that then got caught in a traffic jam, but hey, we live and learn.
Unless you’re staying in the Oltrarno, the Piazza Della Repubblica may be on your way back to your hotel, and it’s a lively place for a little nightcap.
If you get lost in any back alleys,
wherever you are the Duomo will always help you to get your bearings.
