Florence you don't know yet

When we were going to Florence, everyone was making a list of places we had to visit. Okay, but you can't see everything in a few hours. We plan to return to this charming place on our own and to see ... everything. This time we decided to get lost in the narrow streets, and also to see places that the average tourist will not see. This is where we ate the most delicious pizza, of which we had the opportunity to try in Italy. It will not be a typical guide to Florence, it will be a Florence that you do not know yet.

Coming to Florence we came across beautiful weather. I can safely say that the heat was pouring from the sky - there were 33 degrees! Visiting at such a temperature was a challenge for us. Fortunately, we had a lot of fruit and water, which was provided by the wonderful Hotel Doge in Milano Marittima. If anyone has not read the post about Milano Marittima, be sure to do it now, because Milano Marittima is the perfect place for an Italian holiday. Not only the place itself made a great impression on us, but also the hotel where we stayed. We haven't met such cordial people for a long time. You can buy a trip to Italy, including Florence on ITAKA's website.

Returning to Florence, we can safely say that this is the most charming place of all that we visited in Italy. We were terrified only by the huge number of tourists, who sometimes had to squeeze through (in some places we waited 15-20 minutes to take a picture). This was one of the reasons why we separated from our tour group and decided to explore Florence in our own way. We saw beautiful places, we took over 400 photos, we ate a delicious pizza ... can you imagine a better day in Italy?

Yes, it could be better. While in Florence, we couldn't go to the Chanel boutique in Piazza della Signoria. I'd love to go out with the whole store, but this time nothing caught my eye enough to buy it.

As you go to the Chanel boutique, be sure to find the best ice cream we've ever had (standing straight to the Chanel boutique on the right). Just be sure to ask for the single version, because we couldn't eat the big one with Piotr! The portion was HUGE !!! We especially recommend fig ice cream, which is really delicious. The melon was bland and not very good. Interestingly, all fruit and dark chocolate sorbets (in Italy sorbets are completely different than sorbets in Poland) are vegan. We had paradise in Italy when it comes to ice cream.

I decided to visit Florence in a checkered Indis dress from Marie Zélie. It is not only very comfortable, airy, but also charming (the bow at the waist is really very cute). When I wear this dress in Warsaw (the check is perfect for autumn!) I immediately remember our Italian holiday and a trip to Florence. This is an extremely nice memory that I will forever associate with this dress.

In Florence, you can find several stores with handmade leather shoes. They are not only extremely beautiful, but I suspect that they are also very durable. Moccasins caught my attention, but also those long, tied low-heeled shoes (on the right).

Places I would like to see

I have never told you about places I would like to see. I'm not the type of traveler, and every trip stresses me a bit, mainly because I don't like leaving Semir. Taking care of Ushka, I knew the consequences.
Let's move to magical places for a moment. I invite you today to travel around the world.


I have been dreaming of a trip to India for years. This place fascinates me with its culture and richness of colors. It all started from Bollywood movies to Indian cosmetics and yoga. My fascination with India is so big that we had even one outdoor wedding session in the atmosphere of India. This place is at the top of my travel list of dreams.


The south-eastern parts of France seem to be beautiful. Extensive fields of lavender (I can already smell this smell!), Which already in the pictures delight with colors. Added to this is lush vegetation. It all makes me in love with those surroundings and they seem to be the perfect place to relax. The village of Gordes also seems to be an ideal place to explore. Construction that impresses with its simplicity and class ... something beautiful. So far, Nice seemed equally interesting to me, but considering that it is not safe there - for now I will give up those areas.

This city has always delighted me with its mystery. I regret that I did not go to Paris when it was safe. I hope that the situation in Paris will be stable and we will be able to see the Eiffel Tower with Peter, which apparently does not impress during the day, but in the evening is fabulous.
Of course, the Louvre, delicious food, narrow streets and ubiquitous cafes (macaroons, croissants, pain au chocolat ... yum). All this makes me regret that teleportation is not possible. I would love to eat breakfast in one of the Parisian cafes.

Blue water, paradise beaches, all in a set with high temperatures. Where can it be better? Sicily seems to be the perfect place to forget about everyday problems. For this beautiful monuments, e.g. the amphitheater in Taormina. I think this is paradise on Earth.

Or is the Dominican Republic a paradise? I do not know myself. I know one thing - Dominica must visit the Dominican Republic. And seriously it's me - a fan of high temperatures, lying on the beach and doing nothing I assume that I would feel perfectly right in this place. Waking up and seeing the beach and turquoise water instead of blocks ... dream 😉
