Ciao Bella, Florence

View from St. Regis Florence Suite

FIRENZE. The beauty of fashion and history within a single city’s walls.

Just a train ride away from Pisa, Florence was warm welcome after a full day of traveling. Yes, we flew into Pisa from Paris before taking the rail in. All we wanted by the end of the day was to take a long nap. Luckily, we checked into a suite at the St. Regis Florence, complete with a luxurious bed. Oh, the personal butler was nice, too. The view (photo above) from the windows, was absolutely gorgeous, especially at sunset.
