Tranquility of San Miniato

I am speechless again today about how beautiful this city is. It is almost November, and the temperatures have been in the 70's the last couple of days. We took advantage of the gorgeous blue skies and went up to San Miniato church above the city of Florence. 

It is one of the most peaceful settings in the city. A nice retreat away from the hussle & bussle of the city center. Bella giornata!

That is a gorgeous view! We were in Florence only one day in August, definitely not enough time!

San Miniato is also one of my favorite places. Have you walked in the forest of trees that surround it? I like that even more than the church and have often gone there when the noise of the city gets to me. Verdant green beauty, tranquil and restorative, and very seldom is anyone else there.

We missed San Miniato and Boboli gardens. so hopefully next year, we'll go Florence to continue our journey, visit the places we have missed, and eat the yummi food we ate.
