Firenze (Florence) and Fiesole

I completed my tour of the four Italian cities I had planned to see on this trip by visiting Florence on Saturday. Florence and Fiesole (the little Tuscan town eight kilometers to the northeast of Florence) are beautiful and I am really hoping my future grad school plans bring me the opportunity to study here one day!

Not the REAL David, but close!

My Italy ring! This was given to me in Fiesole by the artist who created it- such a fun souvenir from my time here 

Firenze has such rich history!
