Florence by Joy

Florence (Firenze) became a giant spider web as I weaved around and through the city trying to catch every, and I mean EVERY, sight. I've never captured so many major squares (le Piazze), marbled sculptures, ancient frescoes, art-filled galleries, large palaces (i Palazzi), open and covered bridges, bell-towered churches, impressive architecture, gelato shops, espresso cafes, pasta ristorantes, and of course, designer stores and open markets displaying their leather belt, purses, and shoes; silk, cotton, and wool scarves; along wth the latest fashions. (And yes, I did manage to digest as much gelato as I could, and stuff my suitcase full with gifts!)

Unfortunately, like a spider, I don't have an antennae so I spent more time being lost than conquering Florence. By the end of my week, I wished I had 8 legs like a spider because my 2 arthritic knees needed a rest from all the cobbled-stone walkways and steps!
