Whatever you’ve heard is true, it is really impossible not to fall in love with Florence. The city is so incredibly beautiful that everywhere you look, you feel like you’re in a Renaissance fairy tale. I think this has something to do with the city being the centre of the Renaissance art world, remnants of which are all around you. The Duomo or cathedral of Florence is so massive and striking, we managed to get tongue tied every time we passed by, which was at least five times a day. Once you visit, you will realize that all roads lead to the Duomo, it’s somehow impossible to escape the overbearing presence of this spectacular monument though we wouldn’t complain.
