Girl in Florence aka Georgette Jupe

I started this blog as a writing outlet for me to share what it is I adore about the beautiful city of Florence and Italy also sharing travel tips and stories along the way. Now 'Girl in Florence' includes advice for Florence, artisan features, interviews with locals, tips for life in Italy and travel posts from all over Europe. I'd love to think of myself as a fearless badass but If I am keeping it 100% real on this blog a quote that I sort of live by is"I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." I hope you enjoy this journey with me.

Rome in November – a photo diary


Rome in November – a photo diary

why yes I’ll take a right!

Many people don’t think of visiting the Eternal city in November, when it starts getting cold but in my opinion  – it may just be the best time to go. I went for a work-related event for We held a fall cocktail at the beautiful Domus Talenti location and though my trip was short and sweet, I have to say – Rome was never prettier. The weather was perfect to the touch – not too cold, not too hot with the sun shining bright (until 5:30 that is).

Instead of pushing your way through throngs of tourists and sweating your way into the Vatican – going off-season may just be the only way to go. Also check out the awesome panoramic views all over Rome, I couldn’t get enough.

My tools of the trade, Kindle, real book, sunglasses and passport, who needs underwear?

Scenes from our fall cocktail – the turnout was awesome and I met so many awesome expats including Sara and Rome for Expats .

Last but not least, I can’t resist leaving Roma without having one last slow cappuccino (even if this did cost 5 euros), this time with Liz – an awesome American attorney living (and working) in the city. Au revoir beautiful city, I will be back.
