Florence – part 7 – Some Fantastic Photos

Tweet I promised you that I would post some  more photos, ones that are not taken by me (you might all be tired of photos from my trip to Florence by this time but I really want to post these, so I hope you won’t mind 🙂 ). All of these photos are taken by Phil Thomason, and if you want to check out all the photos he took of the event you can see them on his website Thomason Photography. There are so many amazing photos, I would like to post them all! However I am not going to … Continue reading

Florence – part 6 – Pisa

Tweet This really shouldn’t go under the title Florence I suppose, but it fits better in with the rest that way. 😉 As I was flying both to and from Pisa this time I thought it would be fun to actually go into the city and have look at the famous building they have there; the leaning tower of Pisa. When I arrived in Italy it was evening and I had no time for any sightseeing. That is why I decided to leave Florence slightly earlier in the day, so I would have some time to look around. I was … Continue reading

Florence – part 5 – More pictures of the city

Tweet I’ve now told you about these amazing events that I attended, I just thought I’d share some more photos from the beautiful city of Florence as well. There is so much to see there!

Because I find that often just strolling around or sitting somewhere watching people are the most enjoyable things to do. So I did a lot of that. … Continue reading

Florence – part 4 – Jane Austen Day at the Villa

Tweet The next day I stayed in my apartment all morning till it was time to leave again at 1. I will admit that I was rather tired from the night before… So I got myself ready, in my white dress that you have all seen many times before this time, and headed out. We were to meet up at a bus stop, not too far from where I was staying. And from there we were to take a bus (surprise, surprise, I don’t think anyone could have guessed that’s what we were going to do at a bus stop! … Continue reading

Florence – part 3 – Grand Napoleonic Ball

Tweet I decided to go ahead and jump straight on to the first ball now. The Grand Napoleonic Ball that was held on Saturday evening in the impressive Villa del Poggio Imperiale. I mentioned this place previously when I first decided that I was going to Florence. At one point it was the home of one of Napoleon’s sister, the Grand Duchess of Tuscany, Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi.  And this is what it looks like: Rather grand isn’t it?! 😉 This palace is located not far at all from the city center. So a short walk and then a short taxi … Continue reading
