Continuation of our Florence journey

This is a Thursday's Travels - Anything about previous, current and future (upcoming) travel exploits entry under my Travel themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

I feel that I'm extremely tardy in clearing my travel logs about my honeymoon in Europe! In a bid to clear as much as possible, I decided to shorten the Florence logs!

We loved the Florence leg of the trip! This was also the stop that we stayed the longest. Some of the places we visited were:

SPACE Factory Outlet

If you are a shopaholic, you can't visit Europe without visiting an outlet mall. We visited TWO in Florence.

SPACE Outlet isn't the most accessible place ever. We took a long train ride there and had to wait for a cab at the train station. We waited for close to an hour for a cab!

SPACE Outlet sells mainly Prada and Miu Miu items. Upon reaching SPACE, you'll be given a ticket where you'll be 'reserving' your items using the number on the ticket. Tickets run out fast so do be sure to choose fast before your items are gone!

Prada generally is more affordable in Italy. I scored a few good buys! Bought a bag and a wallet!

The Mall

If you only have time for one outlet, I'll recommend The Mall. This huge area has brands such as TODS, Prada, Miu Miu (you can skip SPACE Outlet if you're heading here), YSL, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Dior, Fendi etc. Just like SPACE, most places would offer a ticket for you to purchase your items.

There is also a Tax Refund area at The Mall. As I've already shopped at SPACE, I didn't buy anything from The Mall. We did enjoy a leisure stroll and viewed most of the lovely items in various boutiques!

Leaning Tower of Pisa

One of the main reasons we visited Florence was that I wanted to visit the Leaning Tower Of Pisa.

I had wanted to take a picture of my Leaning Tower of Pisa nanoblock with the real deal!

The original David by Michelangelo is located Accademia Gallery by the way. The rest are replicas.

Taking a break and enjoying an outdoor performance.

Enjoying an expensive dinner at Sabatini

Courtesy of Skai's friend's recommendation, we decided to splurge on a meal at Sabatini located at Santa Maria Novella.

Known for their excellence service and flambé dishes, Sabatini did not disappoint. Definitely worthwhile to pay a visit!

Visiting the Galleries

One of the galleries we visited was the Galleria degli Uffizi which holds a great collection of Renaissance art. Do take note that the queues are crazy, would highly recommend going early and also booking a day in advance!

Doing the touristy thing. Taking pictures of everything. In this case, of a carousel.

For some reason, they look more magical overseas. Also took these pictures to share with BFF who loves them!

Checking out the Duomos

If I'm correct, the cathedrals and churches are called Duomos. We visited plenty during our trip! Not only is the Duomos beautiful on the outside, they are even more gorgeous in the inside!

Enjoying way too much wine.

As mentioned in a few blog posts, wine is cheap. Well, cheaper than soft drinks! Knock yourself out!

We really enjoyed our stay in Florence! Hope to be able to visit Europe in future again!

LOL!

Will be blogging about Milan soon and after that, my final leg Paris!
