Back to Florence, Italy

The third stop on our tour of Tuscany was Florence. I guess rubbing Porcellino's snout last year must have worked. Yeah Porcellino!!

Florence is the capital of Tuscany and is one of the world's most beautiful cities. It's no wonder why it's a UNESCO World Heritage site. It was so nice to come back even if only for a day.

My favorite square is still the Piazza della Signoria. You've got to love all of the free art.

Most people climb to the top of the Duomo for a great view of the city. The line was way too long today for a trip to the top.

However, the best panoramic view of Florence's famous sights, including the Duomo, is a 25-minute walk away at Piazzale Michelangelo, high above the city.

The square was built in 1869 and there's also a bronze copy of David here. Plus you don't have to pay €8 (~$10.50) to enjoy the view.

It was a great day in Florence. And you can be sure that I went back to rub Porcellino's snout to insure another visit.
