My name is Silvia Gualengi and my destinations are Florence and Bologna.
I’ve been living in Florence since 2003, and before that I was based in Tuscany. I am from a little town near the mountains, about halfway between Florence and Bologna.
Florence is really a small city, and it’s easy to walk to almost all places of interest. The one thing I would really recommend is visiting the Duomo’s terraces; you can actually climb the dome itself and come out on the terrace for the views of all of Florence.
In Bologna, there is a little window on Via Piella (Finestrella di Via Piella). Bologna was like Venice once upon a time, with waterways and canals, so there is a little window very close to Via Indipendenza (which is the main road of Bologna) – you open it and you can see the secret canal flowing. It’s a hidden gem that people should see!
