Kristine Jannuzzi shares snapshots from life in Tuscany

Expensive Italia Dwelling Readers,

Greetings from bella Firenze, cradle of the Renaissance and capital of Tuscany! I do know a lot of you could have needed to postpone or cancel journeys to Italy in 2020, and that the ensuing disappointment could be extra intense this time of yr even underneath “regular” circumstances. So I’m hoping that these snapshots of life in Florence over the previous 4 months would possibly brighten your vacation spirits, and encourage you to begin planning your subsequent journey, every time that will likely be doable.

The Christmas decorations which have unfold throughout city this month are really breathtaking, from the tree in Piazza del Duomo to the dazzling lights alongside By way of dei Tornabuoni, certainly one of Firenze’s most elegant streets.

The climate this fall has largely been fairly gentle, and I’ve witnessed some beautiful sunsets over the Arno.

The town’s iconic structure and church buildings appear extra stunning than ever, with fewer individuals round permitting for nearer, much less hurried views. The skyline within the night by no means ceases to please.

Since I relocated to Florence in September, I’ve been staying in an ideally located house in Palazzo Belfiore, simply steps from the Ponte Vecchio and Santo Spirito. Palazzo Belfiore is among the three properties run by Your Place in Florence, and the rooms and suites are appropriate for each quick and longer-term stays. The ample personal backyard behind Palazzo San Niccolò is a beautiful oasis, and I might extremely suggest staying in any of those palazzi when you’ll be able to return to Firenze.

I hope you’ve loved these highlights from the previous couple of months, and that you’ve got a protected and glad vacation season. Buon Natale da Firenze!

Warmest needs,
