|The (beloved) Arno. From Santa Trinita - our kissing bridge.|
I love this place. But a bit So funny to be so relaxed now, after 6-7 visits....we just feel at home. I LOVE coming to a place where I can get right to where I want to go, to hit the ground feeling solid and ready and confident. And that is Florence now. Good thing! We are "entertaining" 4 guests from the US starting tomorrow! For now...just some images from the day. Thanks for hanging out here. Ciao!
|Of course, this is Il Duomo with the dome...Giotto's bell tower and the Baptistery in the front left.|
How did all this brilliance land in one place at one time?
|Ghiberti's Doors of Paradise (well, a copy) Originals in museum behind Il Duomo. |
Said to have been the official beginning of the Renaissance. 1401.
|Home in Firenze - Palazzo Ginori. In the same family since 1500.|
|Our apartment for a week - Nonna in Palazzo Ginori. How sweet is this?|
