Florence skyline - Ponte Vecchio on the left and the Campanile and Duomo on the right.
We came back middle of last week from a 10-day trip to Italy - 4 days in Florence and then we hired a car and drove round Tuscany and Umbria. Great food, fabulous wine and wonderful scenery. Thought I'd share a few photos!
One of several copies of Micheangelo's David around town... we didn't join the queues to see the real thing in the Accademia.
There are lots of churches - this one is Santa Maria Novella.
Don't think we've ever visited so many churches in such a short time!
And we climbed both the Campanile (bell tower) and the dome (above, seen from the Campanile) in one day ... that's a total of 878 steps!! (Good for the glutes, I'm told!)
Italy being Italy there were Vespas everywhere!!
More photos from Italy soon! I've about another 500 to go through!
Sadly having had some of my photos pinched and used on other people's websites without being credited to me, I've been forced to add watermarks.
