Sunday, July 15, 2007So, on our second full day we all decided to go to Florence, as we had all heard great things about the place.
Packed with tourists, I guess if you wanted something romantic then Venice would be the way to go, but if you're interested in architechture and sculptures to die for, then this was the place. Yasmin decided to sit this one out, not that you'd notice, I didn't take any group shots!
The Baptism of Christ, by Andrea Sansovino, above the gates of paradise at the Battistero di San Giovanni
An octagonal building! You don't find these everywhere... Battistero di San Giovanni, said to be the oldest building in Fiorenze, in the Piazza del Duomo
Doors that seem to want to keep people out, found on the Santa Maria del Fiore
Palazzo Vecchio, and plenty of tourists.
The massive Piazza della Signoria, and where we had lunch...
At first I thought that his parents made him wear those sock with sandals, then I noticed that neither parent was doing it. So yeah, I know when I was was his age it was daggy, didn't know it was cool all of a sudden. Maybe I'm showing my age.
A replica of Michelangelo's David outside the Palazzo Vecchio, on the Piazza della Signoria. Didn't know where to find the original to be honest (But later found out it was at the Galleria dell'Academia, and that photos are, apparently, not allowed anyway)2 comments
