If you know where to look, Florence is a paradise.
This phrase in Dan Brown's best-seller, Inferno, offers the key to visiting the city right alongside the author Robert Langdon as he sets off in search of the threat hidden within Botticelli's "map of Inferno".
While reading the Inferno, I delve into the mysteries of ancient Italy, Florence's past during the times of Dante and of the Renaissance.
Following in the footsteps of the main characters to discover the mysterious settings of the story, including the secret passageways of the Palazzo Vecchio and the Hall of Geographical Maps, the Florence Baptistery and Dante's Death Mask.
Piazzale Michelangelo is the place to be when you want to have an unobstructed view of the beauty of all of Florence. You have great views of most of the sides, the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Fort Belvedere and all beautiful sights of the city.
I stayed in airbnb in the heart of Firenze, it was a walking distance to all must sees in the city. It was my first experience with Airbnb too and maybe will remain the best because of the special host I had the chance to rent at. Will be happy to share her contact details upon a request.
I'll be sharing with you my tale about Istanbul as I'm considered a poet when I talk about it. Stay tuned than :)
