Ponte Vecchio

Since it’s my mom’s first time in Italy, I thought I’d show her around for a bit. Just a quick stroll around the beautiful city on the way to Ponte Vecchio.

itscamilleco.com2013060901

This is Palazzo Vecchio located at Piazza dela Signoria. This Piazza is one of the busiest because it has so many tourist attractions.

This isn’t the real David statue by Michelangelo. The real thing is at the Accademia Gallery. The line for that is ALWAYS long and since my mom isn’t really big on museums, she’s already content seeing this replica. LOL! But if you’re a first time visitor at Florence and not lazy like my mom (just kidding, mom), I highly suggest visiting the Accademia so that you’ll see Michelangelo’s masterpiece in person.

Just a few steps away from Palazzo Vecchio is the Uffizi Gallery, another must-see museum here in Florence. It has the best art collection that includes works by Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Raphael and so much more.

You’ll see a lot of jewelry shops like this around Ponte Vecchio. Most of them sell gold.

I have the exact same photo of this taken when I first went to Florence a few years back. Nostalgia hits!

When you cross the bridge to the other side of River Amo, you’ll reach Palazzo Pitti just a short distance away.

Aside from the Royal Apartments, Palazzo Pitti houses a lot of art works as well in its Palatine Gallery, Costume Gallery and more. I really love touring around palaces. So much grandeur!

Too bad I wasn’t able to tour around its garden though. It would’ve been great to take outfit shots here but the palace was about to close already. At least, I got to see it from one of the windows. Haha! That’s as good as it gets.

itscamilleco.com2013060922

Might as well take my outfit shots outside like a true commoner. LOL!

    Hello Ate Camille. I just would like to ask if the pants you’re wearing did fade a bit after washing? ‘Cause I also have like that (also bought in Singapore) and i guess it’s the same material. And unfortunately, the black portions did fade :( (turned to gray).

    I’m nuts for your printed pants here! The pattern is so cool! Reminds me of a very Alice-in-Wonderland theme. The places you showed here sure look very sophisticated… Everything seems breezy and peaceful despite the tourists. I’m also loving the artist you took a photo of. The paintings on display on her stand look very nostalgic.

    While I was looking through your blog, my 6-year-old sister showed up in my room and saw your picture and said “Uy, ang ganda naman niya!!!” After which, she had taken my laptop from me and started scrolling through your blog. All i ever could think of was, “MANG-AAGAW” Kidding! Hahaha! She kept on saying, “Ang ganda niya talaga, ate”. Hahaha! Even my little sister adores you! :)

It feels like we were travelling with you abroad! And I applaud you for that Miss Cammille! Thank you so much for posting; you’re an inspiration, especially to a girl like me who dreams of travelling around Europe once I have a job na! :)

    When I go (yes, “when” so I’ll make it happen as opposed to when I say “if”, hahaha!) to Italy, I might just keep going “Ooooh! Ahhh! Pretty!” and take notes on where I can take future outfit shots, hahahaha! It’s like the place is blessed with a perfect environment! The government really takes care of their historical landmarks, kakainggit! I love your jacket though :P and your super adorbs kitty flats! <3
