Florence is the capital of Italy's Tuscany region, and home to fine dining, architecture and historical pieces of artwork which can be seen in galleries and squares around this beautiful City...
Although this was a holiday like everyone I wanted to document it with some photos, the compact Lumix GX100 has been a worthy addition to the kitbag and with a 24-70mm F1.7-2.8 lens it covers most aspects of coverage for a long weekend break. Florence is a beautiful place, full of history, stunning sculptures, buildings and sitting on the river has a timeless feel to the location.

We covered all of the tourist locations, the Duomo Cathedral which is almost visible from every area of the City with its large terracotta tiled dome, the Uffizi gallery which houses one of the most famous paintings in History, Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" and also the Palazzo Vecchio that shows off all of Florence's history with large paintings depicting scenes of Battle throughout history. Also from the Palazzo you get great scenic views of the City, with temperatures above 30 degrees each day and azure blue skies the weather couldn't have been any better.
