History, art, architecture, wine, gelato…what’s not to love? Well, I’m going to investigate.

We’re staying in an apartment (with a rooftop patio!) in the Santa Croce neighborhood, not far from the famed Ponte Vecchio bridge. I watched A Room with a View in preparation, but otherwise I haven’t planned too much. We’re joining a Tuscan wine tasting this evening and visiting the Uffizi Gallery tomorrow, so we can see this gentleman…

…otherwise, I’m hoping to soak up the sunshine, people watch and pretend I’m Sophia Loren.
