Fun in Florence

We had a great time in Florence!  Katharine, our new friend from Amalfi was again our guide for part of our time in Florence – it was great seeing her again.

The Duomo is most prominent site in Florence – we climbed the 463 stairs to the top.  It was worth the view!

The Ponte Vecchio ( “old bridge” in Italian) is truly that.  Originally built by the Romans, it was the only bridge in Florence not destroyed by bombings during WWII because Hitler gave orders not to bomb it.

They don’t allow pictures of the real masterpiece of David while inside the museum, so the above will have to suffice.
