My second day in Florence was spent at Cinque Terre and is covered by a separate blog
So 6th June I'm back in Florence and Italy has turned on a beautiful day this time so it's time to attack Florence. I'm not going to run through my minute by minute recap but I managed to cover the following:
Piazza do Santa Maria Novella
Montefiascone cathedral (duomo)
Statue of David
Beautiful panaramic views from the top of the hill :)
The duomo was amazing!!!! It's the really impressive building in all my photos. And the walk to the top of the dome is well worth the effort. Statue of David was a statue...it's nice. Ponte Vecchio didn't impress me that much, the bridges in Verona were much nicer. The views from the hill looking back over florence are amazing and very easy to get to on the hop on hop off bus.
My last night in Florence was a quiet one with an early train to Rome beckoning the next day.
Florence is an amazing place with breathtaking buildings, an amazing skyline and history that is endless. I found the people really nice also and very helpful. I was that pressed it managed to knock Verona off the top of my Italy list.
Now I dont have the photo up yet but I will eventually but my closing quote today comes from an unknown philosopher written on a column at the top of the duomo dome and it simpy said:
"disregard females, acquire currency"
