Mr. Misadventures and I took thousands of pictures during our trip to Italy. Between our food tour in Florence, our Tuscan countryside adventures heading to Siena, our Context Travel Tour in Siena, our under the Tuscan sun wanderings, and the amazing rooftop at the Westin, lots and lots of photos were taken!

Here are some “leftovers” from Florence that are too pretty to not share! Thanks to Mr. Misadventures who supplied plenty of them, his favorites can be found in the Tuscany portfolio on his site, Sel & Poivre Photography.

Florence is such a walking city and it is so easy to capture everyday life. Like laundry. Whenever I am hang drying clothes in our closet at home, my hubby will say, “what is this, Italy?” It’s kind of a French thing, even though you see it all over Marseille as well. Whatever the origin, images like this make it hard to say it is a stereotype! We find it to be whimsical.

Every building has a story, like this old family castle turned into a museum. They kept the rings in which they would tie off the horses.

The shop and their displays are calling out to have their pictures taken. Like this candy display in the window of Caffè Gilli. We had coffee here a few times and I drooled over the sweets.

The store front of La Bottega Dell’Olio, the olive oil and balsamic vinegar store that we spent way too much money in!

We visited multiple places that afforded spectacular views of the city from many different angles. Like this one from the Villa Bardini gardens.

This was from either the Boboli Gardens or the Palazzo Pitti, I can’t remember!

The Giardino delle Rose just below the Piazzale Michelangelo, both of which offer magnificent views of Florence. My friend Katie of Domestiphobia visited near this spot after an epic Tuscan farm dinner. And despite her food coma, she agreed it is stunning.

Mr. Misadventures has a photographic fascination with statues and he is always trying to capture them at interesting angles, like this lion in the courtyard between the Westin and St. Regis.

Or this lion near the Piazza del Duomo.

Of course, we visited the Duomo as well. We were there first thing when they opened, but it is already too late for good light for photography, but the hubby took an interesting photo nonetheless!

That’s it for our trip to Florence. It was our second trip and we look forward to a third in the future. It is such a great home-base for exploring Tuscany and there is lots more to explore!

How about you? Do you have a favorite city you have explored multiple times? What keeps you going back? Have you been to Florence? Do you have spots I should visit?

Like it? PIN it!

Visited Italy once, just on a city break, and didn't get to see much, but I got to see Venice. My second trip to Rome got canceled and I postponed it. Hope I get to visit Italy again soon as it is an amazing place.

Juliette went to Florence this summer, Andi! She's in Nice, now. She finally made it to Europe, if even without me. I loved this post - the picture of the bread in the windows - biscotti - whatever - and all those pastel petit fours. I feel like traveling is in my future - my next thing to conquer!
