Six Breathtaking Photos of Florence

Brianna Cariola is a student at the University of Maryland – Baltimore County, and an ISA Featured Blogger. She is currently studying abroad with ISA in Florence, Italy.

One perk of studying in the city center of Florence is being so close to all the sites! It’s small enough to be able to walk everywhere, and going from one side to the other takes around thirty minutes. My classes, the produce markets, various restaurants and stores, and the piazzas are all easily accessible.

As a result, I am becoming well acquainted with the city of my dreams and discovering so many incredible sights! It’s hard to stay inside the apartment when the art of the Renaissance is right outside my doorstep, calling me to discover the beauty seen on every cobblestone street.

Each day, I explore Florence with my cameras and come across endless photo opportunities. From the people passing through the piazzas, to the bridges along the Arno River, to the side streets with quaint shops, they are all picturesque subjects worth capturing! Here are some of the breathtaking views that Florence has to offer!:
