Italy Blog #46: A Look at Florence from a Distance

In this 46th blog of our May 2016 Italy trip this is a sight-seeing stop that most tourists apparently don't get to see - a look at the entire city of Florence from a nearby hill. After touring Monteriggioni and other medieval Italian towns our driver, who was amazing, stopped at a large hill that overlooks the city of Florence. He said that most people don't know about the view from there and it was spectacular. So, we're showing you what it looks like in photos.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
