Florence, Italy

Florence, Italy

August 11, 2009

Our time in Florence was amazing! To get to Florence we had to travel through sunflower fields of Tuscany. Yet, another place we could revisit.

Our first stop was in the Cathedral Square where we saw the fourth largest cathedral in the world and Baptistery. These doors are to the Baptistery. These doors are know as the Gates of Paradise. Each square on the door is a carving of a bible scene.
A visit to Tuscany anyone? GORGEOUS!

We spent a lot of time in the Uffizi Museum and Academia Gallery where we saw a lot of work done Michelangelo, Rafael and DaVinci. Not the ninja turtles . . . the artists. :)

I would have to say the highlight of the day was when we saw the statue of David. I seriously welled up with tears. It was beautiful.
