While You Were Sleeping
Like in the famous movie “While you were Sleeping” . . .  Florence is the kind of place a girl would dream a lifetime to visit!  I love this city!    Today, we have our included City Tour of Florence (by daylight this time).  This is a beautiful city and I really wished we could stay for an extra night.  This is the point when I realized that I have been transformed to the ways of the “slow traveler.”  I have no clue why the tour company gave us only 1 day here.  I could easily stay for an entire week.

Okay, enough of my tantrum.  Although it’s a little cloudy we still enjoy this great city.  First up, we travel to the usual viewing spot to take our famous group photo. Next we go to the City to meet our tour guide and visit the famous Duomo.  This is an awesome work of art!  We enter the Duomo and follow our guide who points out several important historical facts. 

Check out the detail.  I don’t know if there is anything in the US that comes even close to the Duomo.

 Well, our city tour has ended and we have to leave Florence and head down south to Rome! .  . .  but wait!  We can’t possibly leave without one more view of yet another “fake David!” 
Let’s try another vantage point to admire!  






Running, cycling and hiking gives me that rush! Music energizes and soothes my soul! Photography preserves my memories and tells my stories! Art provides beauty and fuels my imagination! History gives me knowledge, a deeper understanding for the present and hope for the future! Family & Friends warms my heart! And Travel . . . well Travel keeps me HAPPY!
