Just spent three days in Florence. Here are some photos of the town. The overviews are from the Michelangelo Plaza.
Hey Gary and Peg
Beautiful! According to friends, this is the place to live but its too expensive. How does transportation, costs, compare to Roma? Would you and Peg consider Florence as a long term stop? Miss you both!
Well we would not consider it very much. It is very crowded in the decent weather. It is cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Very expensive in the downtown area, which is the only area of interest I know of. Transport is not expensive. I have no idea what rents are like. abracci!
Brings back such great memories. Wish we were joining you.
It’d be fun!
Oh my, beautiful. What a place to be visiting/living. Wishful thinking here …
We still have the pizza oven on for ya!
Just looked at these photos. Veddy nice!I definitely want to return there sometime, and to investigate Fiesole and the Etruscan stuff north of the town. Plus revisit the Uffizi, whose Greek sculpture collection finally made a sculpture admirer out of me (Greek sculptures, anyway).
The Etruscan tombs are great and you must see Villa Giulia!!! Etruscan Museum
