... the Duomo, glorious in the afternoon sun. The girls loved the chocolate stand that featured it's truffled seated on the toe of a life size chocolate stiletto :) I tried the Paznerotti, delicious! Off we went shopping for the afternoon. The shops are endless, I hunted blue loafers while the Gab and the kids kept their eyes out for the Disney store they'd heard all about.
