First Day in Firenze

After orientation and lunch, we had the rest of the day to ourselves. Naturally, we all wanted to go down into firenze and explore a little bit. We got off the bus and began just walking in every which direction. Really, the alleys just lend themselves to beautiful photos.

The building in the second picture is the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, aka a very intricately built cathedral. Between the excellent blue sky and the lines of the architecture, it looked great from nearly every angle. Moving around front, the view was marvelous...

After that, we stopped at a little cafe and got some pizza. Delicious, needless to say. Afterwards, I walked around the Villa and took some pictures. More of them can be seen at, as always. Here's a great view of Villa La Pietra:

Bring on day number two!

  1. Great photos... It makes me think that the USA may do city planning and architecture wrong!
