The final day of our extraordinary European trip with Trafalgar Tours had unfortunately arrived. Thankfully, the day was packed full of more unforgettable experiences in three magnificent parts of Italy: Tuscany, Florence, and Rome. Before our last Be My Guest experience, we made a quick stop at Piazzale Michelangelo — arguably the best place for a panoramic view of Florence that promises to take your breath away.
If you are not fortunate enough to visit The Academy to see David, do not worry because the famous square, which is dedicated to the prolific Renaissance sculptor Michelangelo himself, has an impressive replica of him.
As well as a replica of the four allegories found in the Medici Chapel of San Lorenzo. While the originals are made of white marble, the copies are made of bronze.
In front of me was one of the best view’s the world has to offer, however my eyes were drawn to something else. Since it was 11/11/11, seven couples from China had decided to celebrate the auspicious day by getting married in Piazzale Michelangelo. Our timing was perfect, as we arrived just as two weddings were taking place.
Having been recently married myself, I could not help but get emotional watching these young couples in love commit the rest of their lives together with such a romantic backdrop.
As we were leaving the square I happened to spot one of the wedding present’s.
My Italian Travel Director Marco whispered in my ear, “In Italy, the couple that drives a Lamborghini together, stays together.” Maybe I should have had my wedding in Italy and not Argentina?
