Finally, another fashionable day in Italy! On our second day in Florence, we saw the David by Michelangelo and climbed 463 steps to the top of the Duomo, a magnificent Italian cathedral. It was a lot of work climbing up to the top, but it was worth it for this amazing view.
I loved my outfit for this day! I wore a blue and orange maxi dress with my favorite denim jacket. (BTW: A denim jacket is the BEST THING to bring on vacation! It's not heavy and it literally matches every single color in your wardrobe. There are so many different ways to wear a denim jacket, so don't leave it at home!) I am also wearing my favorite comfy DKNY gladiators and a gorgeous statement necklace. This was a perfect outfit for a relaxing, sight-seeing day!
After the Duomo, we went over to see the David by Michelangelo. I couldn't snap any pics because cameras were not allowed, but seeing the David in person was really cool. It's such an iconic statue and it's absolutely incredible (and HUGE). Then, we headed to our next activity: a private cooking class! We were paired with a chef named Desi from the Ivory Coast. He was definitely...interesting. got to make our own dinner (but we didn't get to pick the menu!) so we made homemade pasta with pesto sauce and marinara sauce, and rabbit stew (GROSS). But, the pesto was delicious!
Cooking in the kitchen was hard work, but it was so much fun! After our delicious homemade meal, we ended the evening in a predictable manner: with some yummy gelato!
