Churches and Sandwiches

Second week of classes is over and so far so good! In my Lost Symbolisms and Secret Codes of Art class we went to San Miniato Church and it was absolutely amazing, The church is located on top of a hill so you get a beautiful view of Florence. It was really breathtaking and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting Florence. When the weather is warmer I want to go up there and have a picnic.

A couple of days ago my roommate and I stumbled on a delicious sandwich shop. Nerbone is located in the Mercato Centrale and it can easily be missed, but by the looks of the line when we arrived, it’s a hidden gem in Florence. The Mercato Centrale is a big warehouse space with hundreds of vendors that sell fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and cheese. I got a simple turkey sandwich (turkey is actually rare in Italy!) on white bread with a delicious sauce. It was simply but mouth-watering! The sandwich only cost 4 euros so I will definitely become a frequent customer. It was also a lot of fun walking around the market and seeing all the wares people were selling. Everything was so fresh and colorful, though  I don’t recommend going there on an empty stomach.
