A Day in Florence


I was lucky enough to not only see the Beyonce concert in Milan last week, but also to have about 24 hours to enjoy Florence! And I most certaintly enjoyed it.  In a 24 hour period, I was able to stroll the city with friends, have an outdoor lunch and Aperol Spritzer while gazing at the Duomo, pop into Gucci and Bottega Venetta for shopping, visit the Gucci Museum, have a ¨Gucci¨styled coffee at the Gucci Museum cafe, have an amazing dinner at La Giostra, followed by a  night out at YAB gay bar with friends.  The next morning, pizza for breakfast followed my a strong espresso fueled me as I stopped at Brandy Melville  Boutique to buy a long skirt, stroll around the city finding beautiful sites and vintage shops, and finally end my morning with the Gelato Festival!  All of this in just 24 short hours!  Enjoy my pictures below!
