I’ve spent a lot of time in Firenze for a bunch of reasons. Firenze is a very small city that people the world over love. The food in Firenze is very rustic and off the chart good. Tuscan cooking is very hearty and make great use of ingredients and leftovers (such as day old bread in Pappa al Pomodoro or Ribollita). This is a shot I took from the top of the bell tower next to the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. The story behind this particular dome is also pretty cool. It’s amazing to think that this building was built from 1420 and you can go climb it today.
