48 Hours in Florence the most populous city in Tuscany

I had the opportunity to have 48 hours in Florence with my best friend and her welcoming Italian boyfriend. My best girl ended up falling in love with an Italian guy. Of course she ended up moving to Florence from Norway! What we do for love! I miss her in Norway, at least I have the opportunity to visit Italy and Florence when ever I want now. Keep looking at the bright side! I miss her.

 

How to make 48 hours in Florence go insanely fast away

 

I went visiting for 48 hours in Florence, I had the most trilling time with Florence and my best friend.  It was honestly the best experience I could ever had in Florence. Nothing can compet discovering a city with your best friend. Nothing can compete with a crazy 50´s party where you dance swing with 5oo Italian all night then end up eating something delicious from a random parking lot in the highway before going to bed. Then wake up and go for insanely delicious hangover lunch in the Tuscany valley with pasta, wine, tiramisu and espressos. Then you are just another 20 minute away before you can have your Gelato!

When only having 48 hours in Florence you have to decide what you want to do. Of course I like to do – two or three things I have to do, or if not I haven´t seen the city the good way. For me these things was: Piazza del Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Best view of all of Florence at Piazzale Michelangelo, Eating pasta and of course enjoying time with my friends in Florence.

I had to borrow this picture because the one I had, wasn’t making the Piazzale Michelangelo justice. It has a spectacular view. If you have the possibilities you should see day and night view of it. Or maybe with the sunset? It was a stunning panorama view over Florence and all it´s wonderful sights.

Enjoying time with friends

 

After our one night in Prato with crazy swing dance we had lazy day in the Tuscany Valley at Argriturismo Tenuta La Borriana. We had deliciously good food in this place and we had great wine. Let´s just say it was a perfect Sunday. We enjoyed just relaxing in the Tenuta La Borriana for a slow afternoon. If you have an extra day in Florence and have a car, this place should absolutely be added at your list.
