    Gee, these photos really make me want to go back and spend more than 24 hours in Florence, which is all I had on my only previous trip. Also, it struck me that to be a street artist there you must *really* have some self-confidence!

    Beautiful photos; they make me want to return. However, one thing I’d say having studied there as well is if you want to meet italians, go elsewhere. The city is so inundated with foreigners that the locals are less interested in meeting one more tourist.

    That being said, it’s worth a visit all the same.

    That bacchus certainly took me by surprise. Oh how prudish we’ve become!
