Florence – “Open my heart and you will see, graved inside of it ‘Italy'”…Robert Browning.

Florence, Italy, has a special place in our hearts. This is the city where the CUPID hit us, literally;)

The medieval city, with out-of-the-world art and architecture is also regarded high in the fashion circles. In Florence, there is something in the atmosphere that makes our spirits high. The entirety of the feel is completely elated.

A lot has been written about the art and architecture of the city. So, without repeating the results of the efforts put in by many noteable people, I wish to share my personal favourites. Besides visiting the museums and getting myself informed of the history, I spent the days shopping and evenings by the river side, getting lured by the enigmatic view of sunset amongst the sounds of live music being played by various bands.

One thing I realised was that Fashion starts in this city and then get itself acquainted to the rest of the world in the years to come. A chic pair of fringed-stilettoes that I bought from there a couple of years ago are the ‘in-thing’ this year.

Inspired by Robert Browning’s quote above, I just have to conclude “Open my wardrobe and you will see, samples inside of it from the Italian Fashion”.

    1. Thank you Allan for your kind words. In Florence, we have been to the Uffizi Gallery, the Academia Gallery and the Cathedral of Florence. I would suggest you to book the tickets online, or else, you would have to wait in long queues under the sun(like us).
      Cibreo and Ora d’Aria are our absolute favourite joints. And we tried the yummy Gelatos from almost every gelataria available in the vicinity of the above mentioned.
      Hope you will enjoy your trip to Florence.
