“Ciao Pussy!” at the Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence–built in 1345. It was the only bridge in Florence to escape being blown up in World War II. Cover art work by William Kelley.

In 2015, when Condé Nast Traveler announced the winners of its 27th annual Readers’ Choice Awards of Best Cities in the World, Florence was ranked # 1.
