... it doesn't have the soaring columns and windows of other cathedrals, so it's very dark and oppressive. In the crypt are the remains of the 4C AD Roman church with mosaics and frescoes which was more interesting. We climbed up to the top of the campanile which was designed by Giotto - 407 steps! - and the views were spectacular. The Baptistry next door has beautiful bronze ...

(I had to stop for a snack for tomorrow - I have fallen in love with Tortina del Monno, this little chocolate filled pastry thing) Tomorrow, we are going to Pisa, Lucca, and the Cinque Terre! We know it's going to be a busy day, but we are super excited that we managed to get out same driver from Monday, Alessandro, to take us (he was able to reschedule another couple to Thursday). I CAN'T ...
