Florence Day 1

Took the train to Florence today then walked along the Arno river. I think I might already be in love with this city. It’s much more chill than Rome was, there’s a lot of really interesting decorative details, and there are a bunch of quirky shops.

I had the most AMAZING dinner at Osteria di Pitti: ribollita (hearty vegetable and bread stew) and gnocchi with gorgonzola cream sauce and walnuts. For dessert, I had freshly baked cantucci (almond biscotti).
