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.


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.


Inside Palazzo Vecchio.


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.

Ponte Vecchio.




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!


The view from one of the windows at Palazzo Pitti.


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.


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

    Wow ! A colourful romantic style !

    In the whole you take delight…”

    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).

  17. Angelic Robles

    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.

    • itscamilleco

      They really do! You’ll love the random paintings you’ll see around the city :) So many talented artists!

  18. Coleen

    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! :)

    • itscamilleco

      Haha learn to share!! Just kidding. :) Awww that’s such a cute story. 6 years old pa lang, fashion blog na! :) Thank you Coleen!

  19. Jeront

    • itscamilleco

  20. Rose Cruz

  21. vanessa

  22. Abi

  23. Cielo

    It’s so nice of you that you toured your mom there. And it’s really sad that you didn’t get to take outfit shots in that grade. It’s so beautiful :)

    • itscamilleco

      Thanks Reena! I’m not sure if there local versions :)

  29. Karina

    Hi ate Camille :) Just wondering, have you tried travelling all by yourself? If yes, are you not afraid or something?
    I wanted to travel someday kasi but I am kinda hesitant of the idea.

    ShoutOut from CEBU : LOooooooooove your blog and especially you ate Camille. God bless.

    • Karina

      Sorry for the repeated comment. I thought it wasn’t submitted.

    • itscamilleco

      Thanks Karina! :) I haven’t yet. I mean I’ve traveled alone but not all the way. There’s usually a group waiting for me na there :)

  30. Vina Guerrero

  31. Christine Koay

    Ponte Vecchio looks interesting! and again, you look chic here, Ms Camille! you always do! Love your flats here! So cute! I guess i’m gonna spend one of my day reading all of your old entry and writing down what place you have visited and also saving some of your picture.. (I hope you don’t mind.. don’t worry, i’m not the weird stalker fan girl.. LOL) You really are an inspiration! and also a role model! <3

  32. roxy

    how do you maintain your bangs po ? do you iron it ba ?

  33. Ericka Garcia

    Omg Miss Camille. You really take good photos! Para na rin akong nkapunta sa Italy! :) You, Jessica Stein’s, Nicole Warne’s blog are my faves because aside from posting your very chic outfit shots, all of you also showcased to us the wonderful places that you’ve been to. 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! :)

    Your forever fan,
    Ericka of http://behappyblue.blogspot.com

    • itscamilleco

      Thank you Ericka! My blog can’t compare to your other favorites, their photos are amazeballs!!!

  34. kersty07

    Nice outfit. I love Firenze or Florence a lot.The entire city is like an art museum… :)

    • itscamilleco

      Oh yes! If only I can play dress up and take part in photoshoots here! :)

  35. Tasha D.

    Finally! Charlotte Olympia on your feet! Sana heels naman sunod! ;) Your denim jacket reminds me of the Acne ones on this month’s Preview cover!

    • itscamilleco

      Some day! I opted for these first because they’re just too cute!

  36. Sephie Rojas

    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

    • itscamilleco

      Italy has so many historical landmarks, you won’t run out of places to see! :) I do hope you get to visit the country. You’ll love it!

  37. Dyan Lapid Domingo

    NO WORDS CAN EXPLAIN HOW GREAT BLOGGER YOU ARE ATE CAMILLE! You’re really genius! Keep it up! :)
