I debated taking the short train ride to revisit Florence, one of the most popular tourists cities in the world.
And on a sunny Saturday in May?
A hot, crowded tourist trap. The over-priced attractions were all lined-up and impossible to enter. BEST book your tickets online.
The one place I wanted to pay to visit was the Boboli Gardens. But the line-up at the ticket wicket was too much for me.
My favourite stop was Michelangelo Square, for the panoramic vista.
If you are some sort of puritanical prude, convinced you’ll burn in Hell if you see God’s creation without clothing — don’t come to Florence.
Michelangelo Gay porn is everywhere. 😀
I did my own walking tour of the major plazas and oldest bridge, Ponte Vecchio.
As a fan of statuary, Florence is a terrific outdoor gallery.

On the advice of the waiter at a chic eatery 😀 called Porks in the central market (Mercato Centrale) in Florence, I had Tagliatelle with Amatriciana sauce for lunch. Better than Bolognese, I thought.
