Well, my time in Florence is rapidly coming to an end and to make things extra interesting, we haven’t found an apartment yet in Rome! Because of various unforeseen circumstances we’re as yet homeless, but thankfully there are lots and lots of bridges in the city that we can probably live under. What it really will amount to will be a few days in a hotel while we dedicatedly hunt and hunt in the city itself, which should be easier than trying to do it from Florence.
While my mind is pretty irredeemably focused (read: worrying) on finding somewhere to live in Rome, I do have a few concluding thoughts on Florence. In short: it’s lovely. Pretty. Manageable. Easy. Full of tourists. Complicated by its own relationship to its history. Almost too quiet. The perfect place for someone to go if they’ve never been to Italy before. I would live in Florence again, but in a different neighborhood and after dying my hair dark. However, now it’s time to move on:
Ruins and Relics might not be back on Monday– depending on my living situation I might not be able to post until later next week, but I look forward to sharing my Roman adventures with you:
