So excited to be finally off to one of my travel unicorns, Florence very soon. And looking forward to testing out my newly acquired 24-105 Siggy....

Anyone got any good tips for sights off the standard tourist trail (already booked for the Duomo dome :)) . There for a week so also hoping to get a car for a couple of days to explore the wider Tuscany (Siena, San Gimignano etc).

Thanks :)

Walk the streets and alleyways, even if crowded with tourists and locals, there are great images to be captured. The Piazzas are full of characters to shoot. The Pontevecchio and Arno River at sunset are fantastic.

If going to Tuscany, Chianti in Greve is another town worth exploring. There were many little side roads we took and stumbled upon a beautiful monastery.

The Castello in Montefioralle was a nice old walled city not far from Chianti.

Enjoy!
