I was planning to visit my sister since she moved to Milan in January for her master’s degree studies on product design. Finally I took a day off from work and we made a weekend trip to Milan. Barış and I have visited Milan before, so apart from the touristic trip we wanted to spend some time with Elvin.
On the last day of the vacation in Italy we decided to go to Pisa and Siena. Florence is very close to both cities, but because they are in different directions, it was much easier to go there by car rather than taking the train. The driver was me of course! Barış followed the track on the map, Jordanka read us some facts about the two cities from her book, and Nikola took a nap on the way.
The most important plan for the second day in Florence was visiting Ufizzi Gallery. It was just next to the Palazzo Vecchio we visited the day before, on the other side of the river Arno. We crossed the river from a different and very important bridge today: Ponte Vecchio.
On the third day of our Italy trip we took a train from Venice to Florence. For some reason I was so excited about Florence, more so than Venice, from the beginning. As we did in Venice, we rented an apartment on Airbnb in Florence. After we got off the train, we found a bus going in the direction of the apartment we rented. [Read more]

We were in Italy last week with Jordanka and Nikola. We planned this trip together months ago. Since most of us were mostly interested in Venice and Florence, we decided to visit these cities. The first stop was to Venice. [Read more]
