SHARE SATURDAY : FLORENCE
Because theres so much to see & do in our beautiful Tuscany I was trying to figure out a nice way to share my favorite destinations & trips around Casale della Luna with you. In the series 'Share Saturday' there will be a blogpost about one dream destination which is not more than 2 hours away from Casale della Luna each Saturday !
For the first Blogpost I chose beautiful Florence ! Florence is only 1 hour away from Casale della Luna by car. The road is very easy & has some good coffee spots on it. I would also like to share my favorite restaurants & sightseeing tips with you here. This is a way for me to share suggestions for trips not only with my guests but everyone who is interested in traveling all around Tuscany ! :-) But now... Lets go talk about FIRENZE !
Florence or how a true Italian would say 'Firenze' is famous for its history & art. Its the capital city of Tuscany. One of the most famous attractions may be the Duomo of Firenze the cathedral which is called 'Santa Maria del Fiore' and was built in 1296 !!! It has room for up to 30.000 people and is incredible 114 meters high.
Also one of the 'most wanted' attractions in Florence could be Ponte Vecchio. Ponte Vecchio isn't just the oldest bridge across the Arno river but also one of the oldest segment arch bridges in the world. It was finished in 1345. Today there are a lot of jewelry & souvenir shops on it.
