Florence is one of the most romantic cities in the world - and Kate Moss and Pete Doherty were determined to make the most of it.
Sharing an umbrella, they strolled through the ancient cobbled streets arm in arm, looking very much in love.
The lead singer of Babyshambles was in Italy for a gig, where model Kate, 32, joined him - though not entirely successfully - on stage.
Despite the rain, they looked relaxed and happy as they ambled around, even stopping at a jewellery shop on the Ponte Vecchio to look at rings.
It is not known if they bought one but it will certainly fuel rumours that they plan to marry this year.
Reports of their impending wedding have gathered pace since their reunion a few months ago.
The couple had separated after Kate faced damaging allegations that she took cocaine.
Then Doherty, 27, who has repeatedly and publicly battled his drug addiction, put himself into the Priory Clinic for rehabilitation. In Florence Doherty was happy to take a photograph for tourists before the couple sauntered off to end their afternoon in a bar.
It was a far cry from scenes at his concert, where Kate was booed when she joined Pete for a duet. She left the stage looking distressed with a mystery gash and what appeared to be blood on her arm, though a spokesman said it was just spilled red wine.
Certainly Kate shunned hospital treatment. Instead, she and Pete returned to a mansion owned by designer Roberto Cavalli where they were staying.
Cavalli said: "Kate and Peter are very sweet and very much in love - they make a great couple."
