The Girl Next Door

Florence is one of the most captivating cities I have ever seen.   For me it was love at first sight.  Absolutely stunning from every angle.  Saturated with ancient history and surrounded with Renaissance architecture. 

 

No wonder this city was named Firenze.  It blossoms with unpretentious beauty.  Florence is like the girl next door; wholesome, unspoiled, but incredibly seductive.  I could keep trying to describe its essence but like most times a picture is worth a thousand words.
