Florence: It Rained!

So for all of June, Florence was hot…usually 90 Fahrenheit or above. Abundant sunshine and blue skies every day. And dry. Not a drop of rain…until my second to last night there.

Rain moved in during the afternoon and all of the sudden the tourists were nowhere to be seen. It was weird. After three weeks of battling the streets and sidewalks of tourists and tour groups, they had disappeared.

Piazza del Duomo? Practically empty. It was a nice change. It was comical to see how all the street vendors rapidly switched from selling sunglasses and hats to umbrellas!

For one night I had Florence to myself. I loved the reflection of the rain water on the cobblestones. After a dusty and dry three weeks, it was a nice change.
