A warm Sunday afternoon…

  1. …in Florence brought me to take out my camera and start taking some photos. I was beside myself with the weather and how I didn’t need my gloves to ride my bike into the center. I had a sudden urge to walk among the Sunday afternoon strollers to see what activities were going on.

    The sun was shining and people were walking with their coats in tow. It was a blessing to have this weather on a day I wasn’t working. From the Ponte Vecchio, I turned to catch a glimpse of the sun’s reflection in the Arno.

    Spring is a-coming!
    My skin shivered when I noticed I had too many layers on. I need to de-robe and enjoy the sun as well, I thought. From either direction along the river, I noticed tourists and locals alike taking in the sun and snapping shots here and there.

    Nothing beats a warm Sunday afternoon strolling along the river with the sun at your back.

    In Piazza della Repubblica, people enjoyed the musician playing cover songs while some just stretched out on the cobblestones and watched and breathed in the sun.

    Thanks, NileGuide! Ever since my junior year in Firenze (many many years ago!), that is my favorite city. Appreciate you sharing a Sunday afternoon with us!
