Under the Tuscan Sun: Firenze ♥ Part 1

Day 1
Our day started off with some mouth watering carpaccio, cheese and rocket. Yummmm

Here are some snapshots from my friend's gorgeous campus..... It essentially looks like someone just implanted a winery into the middle of and educational institution. I felt like I should have been walking around in a toga and sandals.

While she went to class, I went out exploring a bit by myself. It was a gorgeous day and the surroundings I was in were just amazing. The campus was so beautiful... who wouldn't want to come to school everyday if they were surrounded by Tuscan villas and such gorgeous, bright colours? I set out admiring the architecture for a bit and drinking 99cent cappuccino, which was one of the yummiest things I had all trip.

What I wore: 
Flats (New Look), floral printed trousers, sunglasses (Tiffany & Co)
I was getting distracted by the sun while I was reading this newsletter, imagine having to study here... I would never get any work done. 

 My gorgeous friend Karen & I! (Karen's on the right)

Super cute garden where they planted their own vegetables and took classes about harvesting and soil and husbandry

Our next stop was Piazzale Michelangelo where we enjoyed a stunning sunset over the city. It was an incredible climb uphill but the view was so worth it!



We then enjoyed all-you-can-eat aperitivos (it's a light & informal meal... a bit like tapas I suppose?) at this wonderful place called Soul Kitchen. Unfortunately the website isn't working, so I attached the Trip Advisor site just in case anyway was interested. It cost 8Euros for all you can eat (and they changed up the food selection around every half-hour) and it came with a drink. One of the perks with this place is also that in addition to cold food, they have hot meals, which is great if you're not necessarily looking for a snack. I've never had so much yum before..... it was the best time.

Stay tuned for Part 2!
