Dreams Come True: My Time at The Arno River in Florence
Dreams are within reach, all we have to do is go after them. Traveling aboard for my first time alone was a major accomplishment, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity of doing so. I understand not everyone has the opportunity to travel aboard and I can’t express how thankful I am. Firenza was such a beautiful city, with a rich culture and strong heritage.
In my Milano article, I stated that I stayed a full week in Italy with 4 days in Florence. My time was spent eating pasta, pizza, drinking red wine, Presseco, covering Pitti Immagine Uomo 91 and enjoying the experience of being in Europe. Instead of a hotel, I stayed in an Airbnb that was in the Tuscany region of Florence across from the Palazzo Pitti.
Florence is home to some of the world’s most recognizable Renianassance art architecture including the “David” statue, Piazza Della Repubblica, Boboli Gardens, Basilica di San Lorenzo, and the Uffizi Gallery. One landmark I was able to visit was the Aron River. The Aron River is the most important and largest river in Florence next to the Tiber. At one point the Ponte Vecchio was the only bridge you were able to cross in 1218 and was rebuilt in 1966. As I was walking to the Aron River, I didn’t know I was crossing the Ponte Vecchio. With tons of shops, markets, and restaurants, the old bridge is where locals and tourist hang out.
I truly recommend visiting different parts of the world to experience another way of life. Get out, see the world, and live life to the fullest.
