The city of Florence is full of charms, history, and innumerable amounts of museums, galleries and sculptures. I had very good first impressions. One of the first things to do in this magnificent city is enjoy the view from Piazzale Michelangelo, it is absolutely beautiful and definitely worth the mild work out hiking up the hill where it is found. Sunset there is simply gorgeous.
My apartment is very close to the notorious Ponte Vecchio. Everything is very centric and usually does not require more than 20-30 minute walks. On the other hand, the weather is extremely hot, at 37-39 C !!!!!! It is somewhat difficult to explore the city for some hours without some cold water to refresh. But again, it is a great experience. I plan on exploring the city in more detail and visiting several museums soon.
