The second stop on our little Italy-tour was Florence. We stepped off the train from Venice and we fell in love right away. Florence was so beautiful in a way where I just said “-pictures will never do this justice”. And I was right. Also, it was so sunny which occasionally made for overexposed pictures like the one above (where Elis is missing his scalp, haha). But what can you do? 😂
Here’s a look at our first day in Florence (with a few pictures from my phone too):
Started off by skipping down the street because we were on the hunt for some gelato!
I love Sams face in this picture. Even at four years old he couldn’t help to stop and stare at the Cathedral. It was unreal.
I tried snapping it with my camera but it’s the kind of thing you have to see in real life (or I just need to get better at taking photos). So majestic and beautiful with a thousand small details to look at.
Found some gelato! Not just some. This was, hands down, the best gelato I had on the entire trip. I got the pineapple, it tasted sooo fresh and homemade and just MELTED IN MY MOUTH. ARGH. It was almost like butter in icecream-shape?? Take me back so I can have some more. ;)
We didn’t take any pictures but right before this we went on the antique carousel on the Piazza della Repubblica. I recommend it if you’re ever there, it was a fun thing for the kids to do.
Only family picture we got on this trip! All thanks to a kind stranger walking by and offering to take one for us. He had a daughter with two kids as well so he thought of her when he saw us. <3
Taking a pizza-break! Both boys got a little car and I thought it was pretty cute how they then followed them around everywhere on this trip. Sam especially wouldn’t let go of his and if you look closely, it’ll be in his hand most of the time.
My little tourists! 😍
Oh Elis, sunshine in my life. So happy he and his brother loved being away on vacation together just as much as we did.
