Hi friends and welcome to Day 10 of this monumental, inconceivable and definitely memorable blind sightseers tour….!
Sarah & i started our final full day with the legendary amazingly thick cheese…I mean breakfast, then headed out to make the most of our last full day in this beautiful city.
Our plan today was to head East, then travel anti-clockwise until we reached our favourite place (South, by the river Arno) to try and take photos of things we may have missed so far, or from angles different from the norm. Right let’s Go!
Wow, another bell tower, how did i miss this?!
Heading North of our hotel, we stopped once again to gaze upon the stunning architecture of the Florence Cathedral and the Palazzo Medici Ricardi…
As we were heading west, i found another statue, but thought i’d take it from a random angle! 🙂
Sarah found a shop with sunflowers (her favourite flowers)…
Gold anyone!! 😀
After spending a while around the river, we headed to probably the most famous and popular square (Piazza della Signoria) to capture some more statues! 🙂
I wasn’t one of the statues, lol. But i was being very still!
Now for probably the most famous statue of all…Michelangelo’s David. Everyone was crowding round and getting the obvious and boring shot of David. So i decided to get a different angle! 🙂
Both Sarah and i had our own favourite statues. I’ll start with Sarah’s.
Sarah’s favourite is “Perseus with the Head of Medusa”.
My favourite is of Cosimo Medici on his horse…
Do you have a favourite statue??
For the final evening we had booked one of only 7 tables at the amazing “Santa Elisabetta” restaurant in the old 6th century tower at our hotel.
I didn’t take anymore photos as i was too excited, and blinded by the real silver plates whilst picking up the silver knives and forks to see how heavy they were?!…So i simply forgot! 😀
The experience was sublime. Everything was fantastic and we still talk about this meal all of the time.
We then had a final walk out to see the Florence Cathedral at night, it really stood out against the dark night.
Hope you’ve enjoyed being on our little tour today around Florence?!
We have been so blessed this week, not only to be here in this stunning city that’s so rich in history. But being part of an exhibition in the Medici palace still leaves me speechless….Well if always going on about it is speechless!! 🤣
Who’d of thought that after being registered blind 20 years ago, i’d have been here in a photography exhibition?!! Thank you Lord for always surprising me, and giving me a gift i just can’t explain! 🙏
Hope you’ve enjoyed the adventure today…Let me know your favourite part?! 🤔 We’ll meet tomorrow…Same time…Same place for another adventure! 😀
To be continued…
