Florence Travel Tips & Reviews

Florence was the perfect place for a couple. We had many romantic dinners + lots of wine. I loved roaming (and getting lost) on the cobble stone streets. We picked up gifts at the leather market, had an outrageous amount of Gelato and skipped the statue of David in turn for the replica with no line (sshh don't tell).

Florence is one of my favorite Italian cities! It's easy to navigate and there is an array of restaurants, museums and historical sights. For pregnant travelers, it's handy that many museums are air conditioned and there are many cafes to stop in, sit and have something to drink.
