With an area of over two-hundred square miles, the city that was once divided in three is now a mix of old and new. Beyond the ruin bars and baths, the city has a deep history and unique food scene that’s worth exploring.
The capitol of Scandinavia, the city is comprised up of 14 islands, which means you will get your sea life fix while in a metropolitan city. Admittedly, this is an area that can be a bit expensive for those on a budget, but it shouldn’t stop you from spending a long weekend and exploring a city with so much to offer.
When I think of Florence, I think of art. The Uffizi and Academia galleries. What’s great about Florence is that it feels like a big city and a small town at the same time. If you get a chance, walk around on the south side/left bank of the river. It’s quiet, calm, and residential, ie where the locals are at.
Rome can feel a bit too touristy honestly. But something that made up for it was the golden sunlight and the food. Whether its the sound of the small porcelain plates slamming down on the counter of the coffee bar or the starlings swarming about that sets your heart into aflutter, there’s something for you in Rome.
