Do you remember when you were little and opening Christmas presents was the best thing in the whole world? It was not so much the contents, but the action of tearing a wrapped up gift apart like it was serious business that made us all sweat with overexcitement. Now we're older we have grown a little bit more sophisticated. We slowly unfold the ribbons, then concentrate on opening the tape without ripping the paper. That's exactly how I started wandering through the streets of Florence. Unwrapping the city like a grown up. Carefully looking around, inhaling all its beauty. It took me one day. Then I realised there were gifts to discover everywhere. I mean everywhere. Not just anywhere.
Behind every single corner there was a surprise, like a present, waiting for the hands of an eager child on Christmas morning. This gorgeous city had a lot more in store than I dreamt of. From old buildings and spectacular views to traffic signs that make you smile, Florence has got it all.
