FFlorence was a bit of a shock to the senses and its confusing street layout took
some getting used to, even with a map. Tourists, cars, mopeds and locals all shared the narrow
streets. The impressive Duomo, like much of the rest of Italy, was under
scaffolding. Visiting the interior of any famous building involved standing for
hours in queues. Nevertheless, Florence has a certain charm for the romantic. Dining
al-fresco at the piazzas can be very pleasant on balmy evenings.
