We are only blocks away from all the main attractions.
Sunday was a walking tour of Florence. We started at the Uffizi which was PACKED. Saw lots of Renaissance art including Lippi's Madonna.
After lunch we walked to Santa Maria Novella. The facade is beautiful.
The side altars annd the main are all about 20 feet above the church floor. The Arno floods about once every 100 years and covers the main floor of the church.
Finally we made our way to "il Duomo". Silvia our guide spent lots of time describing its architecture and construction. Started in 1295 it took nearly 200 years to complete.
It is still counted among one of the largest churches in the world.
Tomorrow we are off to Siena and the Chiantigianni!!
