florence title

Florence; the mear mention of the city brings visions of Renaissance art and statues.  David, Michaelangelo’s masterpiece is center stage.  You may even envision walking across Ponte Vecchio and browsing the vast array of gold adornments in the high-end jewelry shops.   One should not miss however the rustic beauty around every corner.  Additionally, Florence has unmatched cuisine of any place I have visited.  So much so, I even took an Italian food cooking class where I learned to make a four-course authentic Italian meal.
