TRAVEL INSPIRATION: FLORENCE & PISA

Just a couple of hours flight away, Italy is always a perfect destination for a quick city break – especially as the weather gets colder and the tourist crowds disappate.  At the end of the summer, Claire Graham spend a couple of days in the beautiful city of Florence, soaking up the last of the sunshine with her family and enjoying the warm Italian welcome.

Destination: Florence & Pisa, Italy

Travel Time: 2 hour flight to Florence

I never need a reason to return to Italy. I’ve visited this wonderful country many times and love the people, food and culture.

WHAT TO DO

When in Pisa you simply have to go see the leaning tower, it really is incredible!

In Florence there is so much sightseeing so you will need a few days! I particularly enjoyed the Duomo – Catherdral of Santa Maria dei Flore, Ponte Vecchio, and during the day and evening the Palazzo Vecchio is a great place to sit and soak up all the street entertainment as well as enjoy an ice cream, or two!

WHAT TO PACK

Be sure to take a pair of comfy shoes and your camera.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
