Great trip. The train journey was scenic and it quick. Quick tip, don’t forget to bargain with the merchants at the Florence market for deals on purses and souvenirs, after all this city is known for its leather.
Headout has the easiest booking process. We got our tickets in a few minutes and that too for the next day. Super convenient.
Florence is something else. I went with my wife and kid and it was absolutely magical. The art, the buildings, the open air galleries, all of it was simply mind blowing.
