My Favorite Thing About Italy..

30 Mar

Every night there are local singers/musicians who perform in special spots around the city. Since Florence is warming up, small crowds of people have been coming together to sit and listen to the performers. Earlier this week a few of us brought a bottle of wine and walked up to the Piazza Michelangelo to watch the sun set and listen to the guitarist. It was one of the most beautiful views I have seen since abroad and so calming just to hang out. We always pass another musician singing right down the street from were we live, performing on the steps of the Uffizi, in front of all the statues. After dinner tonight Kendal and I sat and listened to him play a mix of American and Italian songs. Just hanging out and listening to these live musicians has been one of my favorite nights since being in Florence, and an experience that makes me realize that  I really live here : ) All of the tourists, Italians and study abroad students come together to enjoy the music, the environment and the experience.
