I hear people fall in love with Firenze. The art, the people. There aren't really any huge monuments other than the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio. There are art galleries by the dozen - and of course Michaelangelo's David at the Galleria dell'Accademia.
Florence is so small - by the looks of it I will be wandering around it, finding little treasures. I also want to take a Tuscany tour, tasting wine and looking at the beautiful Tuscan countryside (Under the Tuscan Sun, anyone?).
By the way, I've started a Travel Tumblr - Black Peony Travels - please go over and follow me! I'll be re-posting photos of the places I'll be going to, and when I'm over there, I'll be uploading my own photos and adventures - it will be easier for me to post on there than on here while I'm overseas.
I'm slowly accumulating travel items - today I bought No Jet-lag pills, and a travel toothbrush. Slowly but surely!
