Soothing the heart with 3 relaxing activities in Florence Italy

For more than one reason February is associated with red and hearts – Pierotucci is embracing the challenge to show you something red every day. Just a little reminder to Go Red for Women and take care of your heart.

Florence: Art, Gelato and Italian Leather HandbagsA good rule of thumb is to indulge but not to exaggerate. . . however when in Florence, Italy – surrounded by all this “bontà” its hard to remember what is good for your heart!

The rich history and abundant pieces of breathtaking artwork is a constant – and even if you wanted to avoid the “stress” of seeing yet another display of artistic talent . . . you would have to walk around with your wool cap covering your eyes.

Another “delizia” that is next to impossible to avoid would be gelato . . . like anyone really wants to avoid eating yet another cup filled with this creamy delight.  Though not much into colored food … in this case you have to admit that it looks pretty yummy.  Even in the land of “gelato” we are always looking for something new to delight our international taste buds.  The photo caught our attention and the ingredients kept us reading more.

And of course the last (on our list) of things that are soothing to the heart: shopping for a new leather handbag.  No place like Florence offers you the feel of Italian leather, the quality produced from centuries of craftsman perfecting an art and the thrill of excitement over innovative designs.  Roaming the streets and window shopping can be just as tantalizing as visiting a real leather factory where they still cut and assemble bags like they have been doing throughout the last couple of hundred of years in Italy.
