I studied abroad in Florence, Italy for the semester. When I first got there, of course I had to hit all the hot tourist spots!

Lunch at Gusta Pizza

Gusta Pizza, Via Maggio, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

My favorite pizza in Florence! Not only is the crust AMAZING and 100% homemade, but everything comes in the shape of a heart! I <3 Pizza!

Gucci Museum

Gucci Museo, Piazza della Signoria, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

You can't miss the Piazza della Signoria when you're in Florence. Not only is it home to some of the most iconic sculptures in the city, but it also is the site of the city hall. Next to the government building is the fabulous Gucci Museum. You only need about an hour here, but it's definitely worth it!

Visiting the Duomo

Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza del Duomo, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

The most iconic site in all of Florence is of course the Duomo! I love the square around the Duomo for its touristy shops.

Climbing the Dome

Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza del Duomo, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

For the best view of the city, you can't miss climbing to the top of the Duomo. I HIGHLY recommend wearing athletic shoes and buying tickets in advance!

I Scream, You Scream...

Magnum Store, Piazza del Duomo, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

We rewarded ourselves after burning off lunch at the Duomo with a trip to the Magnum store. Pick from a wide assortment of toppings to make your custom ice cream bar.

Photo Opp at the Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

OK so here's a pro tip: for the best photos with the Ponte Vecchio, go to one of the bridges NEXT to it! They're much less crowded and you'll get the bridge in the pic!

Sunset at Piazza della Repubblica

Piazza della Repubblica, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

My favorite piazza in the city is the Piazza della Reppublica because of the gorgeous carousel that lights up at night. There's also a rooftop bar here that's perfect for people watching!
