I fell for Florence three years ago, during a language course in high school. I thought it would be one of those regular school trips, churches, paintings, churches and paintings. However this trip was supposed to be different. All I remember is the beautiful weather we were blessed with and the delicious ice cream we ate at Venchi. I remember the two brothers of Gusta Pizza, who shaped their dough in the form of hearts for me and my best friend. I remember sitting on the little rooftop terrace of our guestparent’s apartment, while enjoying a beautiful view on the cathedral. Last but not least, I remember writing into our Italian diaries, using the newly acquired vocabulary.

When it comes to Florence, I’m fond of it all; the cathedral, the beautiful churches, the Uffizi, Michelangelo, the Arno, the fashion, the food. It’s truly one of my top three cities in Europe, next to Istanbul and Paris, of course. One of the things I like most about Florence is its size. It’s neither too big, nor too small, perfect for exploring the “cradle of the Renaissance” by foot. When I was there with my family a couple of weeks ago, we started our walk at Santa Maria Novella, a beautiful church right next to the main station. From there, the magnificent Florence cathedral isn’t far.

One of my favourite cultural sights definitely is the Uffizi gallery, which displays not only Michelangelo’s David but also works from Da Vinci and more. For all of you interested in fashion, I highly recommend you to visit the Gucci museum, a very well selected collection of vintage Gucci travel sets, haute couture dresses and jewellery pieces. Besides, on the other side of the river, Florence has got even more to offer – hand-made leather shoes, individual fashion boutiques, antiques, you name it.

Lets come to my favourite topic, the food. You haven’t eaten the best icecream if you haven’t eaten it at Vencchi, I swear. I also linked you the Pizza place I remember to be terrific. Moreover, I ate dinner at an awesome concept restaurant this time, close to Santa Croce. If you’re open to different flavors and beautifully served meals, this is definitely a place for you. For the health nuts under you guys, try Quinoa. It’s located in a super cute backyard and it’s a mere 5′ walk from the cathedral. I’ve linked everything down below.

Ice cream: Vencchi

how we roll for work these days / on a side note: you might have noticed that i stopped sharing content as usual, basically  due to the fact that i have a job now and it’s all been a rollercoster ever since i started in the company... besides studying at uni and juggling work, it was soon impossible for me to keep up with events and cooperations, too. so, i decided to focus on work and uni for a while and maybe give my voice here a little bit of a new direction. #womeninfinancialservices ? where are you ? 🙌🏻🙈
