Night 4: Florence
We spent our final night in Florence wandering the streets and were surprised by the fun we stumbled upon. We saw a parade of men and women dressed in Renaissance garb and eventually determined that they were celebrating an upcoming soccer match between two local teams. We ate gelato in Piazza Della Repubblica while we watched children pass by on the carousel. We browsed numerous street vendor stalls and souvenir shops looking for the perfect trinkets to bring home with us.
All that walking eventually made us hungry, so we walked across the Ponte Vecchio bridge back into the Oltrarno district to find dinner. We ended up at Lungarno Bistrot and loved every bite (and sip)! We were too tired, but we heard the rooftop bar at The Westin Excelsior is the perfect spot for a nightcap and romantic moonlit views of Florence.
