Florence, Italy

Florence is one of my favourite places in Italy. Not only is it like stepping back in time, but there’s something else there for me. A feel I can’t define.

So, the Ponte Santa Trinita or Holy Trinity Bridge is a renaissance bridge in Florence spanning the river Arno. It’s the oldest elliptic arch bridge in the world and was constructed between 1567 and 1569.

Florence is on my bucket list and I plan to go back there and stay long enough to find out what it is about the place that fills me so much. I don’t know if it’s the Mediterranean way of life, the food, the history, the buildings or if it’s a combination of absolutely everything Florentine. I need to go back there and find out…

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)
