Cities through time

Buongiorno a tutti! After a non-stop week attending to the firsts classes in italian, dealing with the language (seriously guys, I never thought it would be SO difficult, even with Spanish being quite similar to it...) and meeting so much new people I'm literally exhausted. In addition, Firenze has so much to do, so much to see and experience that even strolling to university every morning feels like a massive walk through history, which leaves you asking for more but also for a place to rest and eat a portion of fluffy stuffed focaccia. Stendhal syndrome, they call it *laugh*.

We've been strolling through the city during this week while trying to find less touristy places and still taking great blogging pictures, which is truly easy, as everywhere you put your eye on around here is either beautiful, classy or has good lighting. I call it "the photogenic city". We shot this pictures in the Piazza del Duomo while on our firsts days here, and I find truly amazing the double reality this place lives: while on daylight it is crowded to no end, we stopped by the other night just by casuality and almost no soul was there. It felt as magical as eerie, the Piazza del Duomo just for the two of my flatmates and I. It made me realize how a city can change through the day, and how some places can only be enjoyed while taking your time to really experience them. Almost no-one stays the night in Firenze for tourism. This classy, elegant and huge buildings were made to be looked at and venerated (everything in this city is, actually) but only a few people take into account that to experience any place, to really become part of it, you must add the factor called time. You must take your time to savour it, to feel it, or you are not really traveling. You are just adding a place to your sitemap.

In the meanwhile, I'll be getting ready for Winter season. I never thought it could be so damn cold in end September here: I'm already wearing my shawls, blazer, sweaters and almost coat. It's surreal. By this time, in sunny Valencia they're still going for a beach day on weekends! Remind me to find a great pair of classy, functional and cute sneakers: I've tripped so much already I feel I won't be getting home in Christmas without a walking stick.

What about you? Any recommendation to enjoy Italy and its less touristy places? Do tell me, I'm excited to know!
