Florence in Photos: A Sneak Peek at One Wonderful Week

I am home from an incredibly busy and interesting week in Florence, Italy. It was quite an experience thanks to my opportunity to attend the Florens2012 Biennial of Culture and Landscape Heritage. While I won’t overload you in the future with posts about Florence despite my love of the city, I will be taking a look at Florence from a unique perspective through some of the city’s lesser-known details as well as interviews with Florentine artisans. For now, I hope you enjoy Florence in photos with some of my favorite images from last week.
