On my first trip to Italy I visited Florence. I immediately fell in love with the city. I walked along the Arno River and the next day took an art tour of the Academia and Uffizi galleries. The tour guide recommended I hike up to Piazza Michelangelo, which inspired this original canvas painting. This view exceeded all expectations I had for Italy and keeps me coming back to Florence. I have since returned to Italy 9 times, and Florence 4 times.
