The City of the Renaissance

Our trip round Europe took us to the beautiful city of Florence (Firenze in Italian), the city that is synonymous with the Renaissance. A couple of days there is not nearly enough to get more than a superficial view of the city with its many museums, palaces, churches and sculptures. The bridge Ponte Vecchio here is one of the most iconic places with its row of jewellery stores and other shops.
