Florence, Italy: History and Hyperventilating

We sat on the train to Florence without a clue as to what to see once we got there. We knew we had to see the David, a whole bunch of old art and the Duomo. But honestly outside of that we didn’t know why we were going to Florence, but everyone we talked to said we HAD to go.

So as we did what we did with the rest of our trip in Italy; we grabbed our trusty tour books and started to read. After all the train from Venice to Florence was 3 hours, we should be able to figure out what to see in Florence in that much time.

As I grabbed my travel pillow, slung myself over our luggage and got ready to begin reading for the next three hours, from the corner of my eye I saw Neeva jump out of her seat and begin shrieking, dancing and jumping up and down. Utterly confused I grabbed her and asked her what was wrong, ¬†once her hyperventilating stopped she looked me straight in the eyes and with a smile larger than I have ever seen simply said “Florence was where Gucci was invented, they HAVE TO GO TO the flagship Gucci store in Florence!”

So in the midst of renaissance art, Michelangelo’s greatest works and 16th century architecture we also spent a little time at the flag ship Gucci. It was perfect although I think our credit limits were getting a workout.

The pictures are from inside the Flagship Gucci Store and after we got Gellato right before we got inline to see the Uffizi Gallery. I love that smile
