  Personal: My Italy Trip ♡ (Photo Heavy Post)
_
Hello everyone!
Today I would like to share some photos from my trip to Italy this summer.
I just came back a couple of days ago and thought it would be nice to do a personal post where I can show you some photos of my Italy trip! I'm not sure if anyone is interested in looking at my photos haha but I just had to blog about it because I regret not blogging anything about my trip to Hong Kong last summer  ㅠ.ㅠ not gonna do the same mistake again !

This post is going to be photo-heavy because I took soo many photos and couldn't decide which one to use for this post because all of them look so beautiful and important hehe~

I hope you will enjoy this post ! ♥



Day 1

The flight to Florence was alright but I was really scared to get into the plane at first because it was really small. Only about 60 people could fit into the plane and there were only like 2 flight attendants ;-; The flight was 1 hour and 40 minutes long~

When we arrived we immediately got into a taxi and drove to our hotel. Above are some photos I took near our hotel. The taxi driver ripped us off, he wanted to have 10$ more than it showed on his taximeter -___-".

The buildings and the city in general look really beautiful! Most buildings there are pastel colored and had this antique look with them (which I absolutely loved ! ♥). Here are some photos of some buildings I took in the first few days:


You can see the famous 'Ponte Vecchio' ("Old Bridge") in the background~ I seriously love the river side and the bridges here in Italy! You can tell by how many photos I took of them haha~

We went to the famous undercover food hall 'Mercato Centrale'. It is said that the bread here has its own soul lmao.. ((it was super dry!! ;~; and expensive)).. Food is super expensive (and not good ;o;) here because they shamelessly take advantage of the tourism. You have to pay service costs (2 to 3$ per person) and you even have to pay if you want to sit down -___-^ (outside 3$ and inside 2.50$ per person omg -__-). They're trying to rip you off !








Pisa

 We went to Pisa to see The Leaning Tower Of Pisa. It took about 40 minutes to get there by train.


The prices here weren't overpriced so it was nice to eat and go shopping in Pisa. They sold Chip Hotdogs here ! ! ♥_♥ soo delicious omg ! !

We finally went to The Leaning Tower of Pisa! It was fun taking many photos with it ((you know these typical leaning tower of Pisa photos where you hug or poke it))




Uffizi

We also went to the famous 'Uffizi' museum in Florence! It is definitely a must to go there if you're in Florence because you can see many famous paintings and statues~!




All halls were really big ♥ They looked really stunning and supported the whole antique image. I was so impressed by the amount of statues and painting they had.


You seriously had to stand in a line to see this room lol but it looked very beautiful, I wish I could have went inside instead of just standing in front of it~








Venus (♥_♥) There were soo many people trying to take photos of themselves with the Venus painting but it was impossible because there were to many people ;-;

























No one seems to have recognised this one though. I thought that it was pretty known too but I didn't see many people taking photos of this one ~



Last day

On the last day we didn't do alot, just walking around downtown and buying some things before flying back home. We ate pizza in a restaurant but I was alittle disappointed of the pizza because basil was missing and I don't know... I expected it to taste better tbh! It tasted like any other pizza you can get here just that it was overpriced and they didn't even season it :/


 

We also went to the Disney store in Florence. It was really nice inside and they sold alot of Disney stuff. I could even find the pink teddy bear from Toy Story 3 that smelled like strawberries!! It was crazy what they sold there! I bought a Chip n Dale plush ^-^* ~ 



We also decided to go to 'Piazzale Michelangelo' to take some pretty photos of Florence from above. It took us a little longer than half an hour to get there and it was super exhausting (It felt like hiking lmao)

We went to this old church because the view from there was the best! This is what the church looked like inside:

 


I took some selcas with my brother and my dad lol ((My dad didn't wanted his face to be seen on my blog lol)). I know I look different in real life than on my review photos because I usually wear tons of makeup for my review selcas OTL.



 This was the view from there... GOOD-BYE Florence

It seems like you had a great trip my beautiful friend!! :) Italy is such a beautiful country and it's only natural to think that the Pizza would be delicious af there xD I've heard a lot of things about the people who try to rip you off. So annoying e.e The museum looks so great and I wish could see the Venus painting in real life~ I kinda like paintings and sculptures of the Renaissance xD Especially the ones from Michelangelo lol

Disney store? Hell yes!! I would have bought all the Donald Duck goodies xD

Italy is one of my top places I want to visit and it looks like you took loads of good photos! I've never heard of the locals taking advantage of tourists (Paying to sit down?! Whaaaat?! Outrageous!!) and it's also disappointing if you think the food wasn't good. Although, the architecture, landscaping and galleries seem to be the best part. Glad you enjoyed your trip!
