Florence, or Firenze in Italian, is hands down one of my favorite cities. The architecture, art, fashion and the food are all exceptional. And it doesn’t hurt that Florence is the capital of Tuscany which as we all know is a region renowned for it’s vino!
Burano is a small island off the coast of Venice. It’s known for it’s bright, beautifully colored houses which line small canals. The colorful homes are quite charming and their reflection off of the water only add to the cheery splendor of Burano. It’s surreal walking around the secluded, quiet island.
We recently went on an Italian holiday and our first stop was Venice. We arrived by boat from the airport, which is the best way to come into the city and take full advantage of the beauty of Venice. Scott and I wandered the narrow, winding streets and came across troves of shops, street vendors and eateries. The canals and bridges make navigating interesting, but that’s half of the fun!
