Florence - Arno waterfront in the early eveningTweet
Florence is one of the most visited Italian cities - and rightly so. Steeped in the history of the Renaissance the Medici family, who once ran Florence, ensured that much of what we appreciate today exists. The Duomo, the Bapistry, the Uffizzi Gallery and its collection, and, perhaps most iconically, the David by Michelangelo all date from Medici rule and control of the city.
Florence straddles the River Arno with the highly photographed Ponte Vecchio being its most famous landmark. In the early evening (when this picture was taken) the light drowns the lightly coloured buildings and causes them to be reflected into the River - which makes it an excellent time and location for a holiday picture.
