Market in Florence, Italy
Living in Italy can often prove to be a strain on the purse strings for many students, and, as a result, it can seem difficult to keep up with the locals' infamous fashion sense. So...
So you’re in Florence. A most beautiful city, full of art and history. Feeling homesick? - perhaps not, but whether you are or not you could still visit an unexpected hidden Teashop just outside the centre of Florence. Well, centre if you’re British or center if you’re American. But you know what I mean. It’s not a long walk, around 20 minutes from the centre. However, if your legs are not up to it then you can get to it by bus number 3, 6 or 20. The area is called San Salvi named after the church San Michele a San Salvi, which was built in the 11th century and is not far from the Campo di Marte Station. Back to the Tearoom then in Via Carlo Poma, 7/9r, Florence.
Summer is officially over here in Firenze and I’ve just realized that September has gone away so fast. I’ve always believed that this month is like the “Monday of the year”, as I’m always full of good intentions and resolutions. But this extended summer made me forget about that and now I incredibly found out that it’s already “Tuesday” (for me and all people for whom the correspondence September-Monday make any sense).
