As we move on through my Cruise Series, we now find ourselves in Florence, a city brimming over with amazingly beautiful architecture and art.
First, my little video - it comes in under 3 minutes and captures the essence of the city.
The cathedral was so beautiful and absolutely huge. There’s also footage of our deluge experience, so well worth a look.
And with no particular order to my photos due to my iPhone download limitations, I share with you now my pictorial memories of Florence.
Our tour bus took us up to the perfect vantage point to capture a panoramic of the city.
Our tour bus stopped off at a perfect vantage point outside the city to capture some fabulous panoramics.
The bustling square cleared in a nano second when a thunderclap overhead emptied its heavy load upon the city.
The hailstones were the size of hazelnuts, and hurt - it felt like we were under fire as we raced the few yards from coffee shop to cathedral. The video at the beginning of this post includes some footage of the deluge.
Just before the deluge.
I'm an untidy tourist.
Ponte Veccio, with a hint of finger!
