Florence is finally here and I am torn how I feel. I am ready for a new city but at the same time loved the simplicity of Cinque Terre. I more think that I am starting to get sick of all the traveling and lugging my bags around. Yes, I admit it, after mailing a huge box home in Spain my bag is still so heavy, I blame the photo gear, haha. We decided that since we got to Florence early enough we needed to take advantage of the city and start exploring right away. We got lots accomplished too!
Ponte Vecchio, has padlocks on the bridge as well. Also the old gold district, the whole bridge is full of jewelry stores.
