Florence Is A Must See – Even If Time Is Limited!

Whilst driving from Rome to Carpi where we are based for a few days, we passed through Tuscany and Florence, not a bad routing. We took a few hours out and visited Florence to seek out The Duomo and Michelangelo’s David.

When arriving in this incredibly characterful city, it is not difficult to find the Duomo which rises from the heart of the city. Santa Maria de Fiore and its orange tiled dome have become the city’s most famous symbol and may date back to as early as the 4th century. It’s almost too big to photography and I found myself taking in segments of it bit by bit, in awe of the size and grandure.

Fabulous detail can be seen at the English website – www.duomofirenze.it – translate for English.
