Cruise Photo Diary + Video: Florence, Italy

Friday, September 05, 2014
Another day, another cruise photo diary + OOTD post, this time it is in the amazing city of Florence. The day we were in Florence/Firenze, Italy was actually my 22nd birthday which made it very special. I also have a few clips from Florence which are at the end of the post if you want to have a look! I didn't really know what to expect in Florence, apart from the amazing Duomo which is the big cathedral and I have watched a lot of Italian Renaissance documentaries and Florence was a major city during that period so it was really exciting for me to visit this beautiful and important city. 
We went on a mini walking tour and we then had three hours of free time. Sadly we couldn't go inside the Basilica of Santa Croce where Michelangelo and others are buried because my birthday (15th Aug) is a special religious day in Italy! We walked around, went inside the free parts of some museums, along the river Arno and obviously shopping. I managed to find a Kiko store on the Via Calzaiuoli and bought a couple of things which will be in a post soon. Overall, I loved Florence and I definitely want to go back!
Here is my OOTD, last time we were in Italy (a couple of years ago) it was so hot in August but this time the highest temperature for the whole cruise was around 26/27 degrees Celsius! I wore my Topshop Petite Vintage Wash Jamie Jeans which I adore along with a stripy top from Monki and my shoes are from Debenhams. My sunglasses are from Marc by Marc Jacobs. 

Here is a little video of Florence, I don't have any clips for that many places as I was too busy taking photos instead of videos but I have quite a few clips from Rome and Vatican City, which will be the next cruise photo diary post - let me know if you like these little videos at the end of posts.
