Today I live in the northern section of Florence, the part you see below in an area that was a grassy field in 1695. Florence has undergone a few changes since then. I love my new neighborhood; a huge pleasure is I am no longer in the touristy area. I meet and interact with Florentines all day every day. It’s heavenly.
