Cradle of the Renaissance
Florence was a quick pit stop off the route to Venice, so we decided to stop and take a quick 2-day fast paced tour. When we arrived, we took a drive through Tuscany in our classic Fiat. The Tuscan hills were quiet and dotted with olive trees throughout the drive. We were also able to see the classic David in the Accademia, along with a huge amount of Italian sculptures that I learned about in art school. Later that night, we were able to feast on the famous Florentine Steak, which we shared with a lone traveler from Korea.
