Florence must be one of the most beautiful cities in the world – it certainly is the most gorgeous city that I have ever been in (Tokyo comes close, but it is beautiful in an entirely different way). I regret not getting more photographs of Florence, but both me and my camera were melting in the heatwave that’s been hitting Europe over the last couple of days – which is why I look so sweaty in these photos, by the way – and I spent the majority of my time either in air-conditioned museums or sipping on iced orange juice in the shade!
Being the massive geek that I am, I wore this painting skirt to visit a bunch of Renaissance art museums (even though I don’t have any idea what the painting on the skirt is – maybe I was hoping to find its original, haha. Can someone more art-literate than me help me out?) I got to see Michelangelo’s David, a whole heap of Renaissance artworks and sculptures, and basically act like a hot, sweaty tourist all day. It was pretty great.
