Florence - Firenze, was not on the list of must see places and I hate to admit it. We decided on a stop over there to break up the day instead of going direct from Venice to Roma. It was a lucky stop over. Florence is absolutely beautiful! The pace felt much slower and more relaxed than the busy streets of Venice. The little lanes and streets were so pretty and dreamy. The colours of the buildings are lovely and I could have happily stayed longer than 2 days!
