Palazzo Pitti

Palazzo Pitti

To make it in the Palazzo Pitti without endless queuing in the hot sun you either book a tour or you come very late. Half an hour was left for me to visit one exhibition. decide what you want to see, because you pay either for the museum or for one of the exhibitions. The people at the counter are not very interested in helping you or understanding you, while I asked for a ticket to see „celebrating wool“ I got a ticket that allowed me to see the „womens power“ exhibition. 

Orto Botanico di Firenze

Botanical Gardens in Florence

Orto Botanico di Firenze – is the botanical gardens in Florence and an oasis of calmness in a buzzing city. I have never ever visited a city as loud as Florence. It is actually very, very exhausting. To escape the noises I went into the botanical gardens, what was a good plan for proximately 15 minutes and then some groups arrived. The botanical garden looks more like the garden the Monte Christo or another mysterious Earl who left his huge Villa behind and the beautiful garden is left in the wilderness.

Santa Maria del Fiore

The duomo – Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore

The duomo of Florence covers the cathedral di Santa Maria di Fiore and is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen. It’s almost fluorescent in the night, golden in the early evening hours and pink early in the morning. Unfortunately, you can only see its full beauty during the night or early in the morning, otherwise the place is so crowded that you hardly see more than the top.

Jardin Agdal

You might not have thought about it, but Venice in Italy and Marrakech have something in common – the best time to be there is spring or autumn. Fewer tourists, not that hot and incredibly beautiful light.

amsterdam trip

One of those ideas. let’s go to amsterdam. lucky me i know annalena who offered us her apartment (you will read about her beautiful flat soon here on this blog). so we spent a few days in amsterdam and i fell in love with this city and their people and annalenas flat as well. a friend warned me: it always rains in amsterdam … and unfortunately he was alwmost right just one day from 6 was sunny, but that one day made it for the rest of the week.
