I used to live here....
Il Nostro Inviato took this picture while he was visiting Florence last month.
Some things never change. To put it bluntly, it will never suck to live in a tower in the center of Florence (near the Arco di San Pierino where you'd see the heroin addicts crowded around the Antico Noe sandwich shop that was tucked into the vault of the arch).
To be sure, it was cold during the winter because there was no heat (I only lived there for about six months). But the highest floor of the tower contained one large open room that was outfitted with windows on three sides, and a large fireplace.
With or without a glass of Brunello, I found the view from the top to be quite compelling, to put it mildly.
