You, Me and Tuscany

We took the train from Pisa to Florence (or Firenze as you would properly say it) via Lucca. Lucca is a gorgeous little town in between, renowned for the well- preserved Renaissance walls encircling its historic city center - definitely worth a pit stop even just for a couple of hours.

First things first - Pizza. If you are ever in Florence - pop into Gusto pizza. I can honestly say that this was the BEST pizza I've ever tasted. Made to order fresh from the wood oven, the pizza is stringy, cheesy and flavorful, delicious!

To squeeze in all the museums, galleries and gelato Florence had to offer, we woke up at the crack of dawn. The Uffizi gallery was our first stop. It is one of the most popular galleries in Italy as it hold's the famous statue of David - by Michelangelo. 

I would highly recommend booking tickets online beforehand, as it does get very very busy especially during the holidays so you could be lining up for a few hours - even if you get there early.

Hi David!

The Doumo, Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral

Accademia Gallery 

The paintings and statues are breathtaking, but don't let that allow you to overlook the beautiful paintings on the ceilings...

Gelato break!

And to end the day, we chased the sunset on top of the scenic hilltop village, Fiesole, deemed one of the best places to take in the whole of Florence.
