The best time of the year in Florence

If you can brave the chilly weather and unpredictable rain in Tuscany, then this time period in Florence is absolutely magical. The streets are not overwhelmed with tourists, there is a silence in the air, and all the beautiful Christmas lights & beautiful window displays fill the city streets. If you want to experience an eyegasm, come here during Christmas, you will not be disappointed.

Luisa Via Roma, hands down - takes the cake (again) for the most incredible, creative window display I have seen this Christmas season. A pregnant Madonna, "Like A Virgin" is currently being displayed in their grande window on Via Roma by Piazza Repubblica.  I cannot wait to get inside to see the other 5 installations that are currently on display as part of a charity event for the cancer ward of Florence's Meyer's Childrens Hospital. 

To see more stunning photos, you can visit their website, Luisa Via Roma, Like a Virgin

Merry Christmas to everyone wherever you may be!
Happy Holidays, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukkah!
