Firenze

July 16, 2013 at 7:49 am (Uncategorized)

So now we’re in Firenze (Florence).  we arrived on Sunday and I gasped as we sighted the  duomo (cathedral). We’re staying in a little apartment in Santa Croce district.

Wandered into the centre yesterday, and stopped by the Bargello Museum. The Bargello is a former prison now converted into a museum. The museum has some stunning pieces including works by Donatello, Verrocchio and Michelangelo.

Later, we walked by the duomo. It’s  truly breath-taking.

In the afternoon we walked around a local church and a leather school. On the way back to our apartment, I ran into a guy selling Lotta Communista. He spoke no English; I spoke no Italian. Sinistre communista I said. We shook hands.  Oh the people you’ll meet.
