Il Duomo

Some email spam made us an offer we could not refuse. €49/night in Florence. Plus, it gave us our first opportunity to fly from London City Airport.

It snowed in London the night before we left, talk about "travel stress". And it never got above freezing the whole time we spent in Florence, but that meant the tourist hot spots were not too crowded.

Here is just one of the dozens of shots I took of the cathedral's exterior. Some parts around the back were crying out for attention, but the front of the church was pristine.
