Tramonto a Firenze

Sunset in Florence

The rain has been falling continuously here since Easter (or so it seems) but last Tuesday, we finally had some gorgeous sunshine and Florence put on one of her spectacular sunset shows.   I was fortunately outside jogging along the river as the sun began to set so I quickly came home (sacrificed my fitness for the blog!) and sent Emiliano out to take some photos.  The stunning pictures below are the result.

The rain has since returned but looking at these photos lifts my spirits as I wait for the warmth and sunshine of Spring to return.

 

I was recently asked to write a guest post giving 3 guide tips for the city from my point of view for the blog, Reading Italian Maps – For lovers of all things Italian.    I didn’t have to think for too long as there are so many amazing places to visit, foods to taste and things to do but when I want to go for a lovely wander around my city, these are the places that I like to visit.

Have a read of my 3 Tip City Guide here.

I created This Tuscan Life blog, magazine and experiences to share everything I love about Florence & Tuscany, one of the most popular and visited regions in Italy.   Add a splash of watercolour & you've got a creative mamma of two who wants to show you the true & authentic side of Tuscany.

These delicious soft square pillows of ravioli filled with mashed potato, cheese, garlic and parsley are more commonly known in Tuscany as Tortelli Mugellani, the famous Tortello from Mugello! If you haven’t tried these yet, then add them to your list of ‘must-taste’ when you next travel to this region known as the ‘Green Valley of Tuscany’. 

Barberino di Mugello is a small town found an easy thirty minute drive along the A1 from Florence or 45 minutes from Bologna. For those of you that know me well, you’ll understand one of the things that I find special about visiting Barberino…….. Did someone say Designer Outlet?
