I’m moving!

Again!  Crazy amount of moving over the past 18 months, but each move gets me closer to Nirvana.  Here’s my new neighborhood, a tree-lined avenue along Florence’s overlooked river, il Mugnone.

I am moving from my current beautiful apartment high above Florence near the Ponte Vecchio.  I will miss the medieval tower that I have as a next-door neighbor.

And my views of Brunellechi’s done and Giotto’s bell tower, a view that inspires me every hour of every day and night:

But, oh, what I’ll gain!  More space, for sure, and a sense of Italian community that is missing in the city center with its inundations of tourists. I only recently discovered this elegant neighborhood, which reminds me a little bit of Parisian avenues, and am delighted to be moving onto via XX Settembre where, from my new terrace, I can gaze at the wide open sky above Florence as well as green treetops and a flowing river.  A lucky tradeoff for me!
