Firenze = Florence. We took a quick trip to Florence today since it's only about and 80 minute bus ride from Siena. We went and visited the Baptistry and Duomo where I had to present The Gates of Paradise to all of the girls. It went well but I'm glad it's over. We also climbed to the top of the campanile (belltower) which included a lot of stair climbing. Excuse for another gelato right? From the top of the campanile we had and amazing view of Brunelleschi's dome and got to see the lovely terracotta rooftops.
We also went shopping at the street market near the Duomo. I love to barter, it's a new found hobby I suppose. I purchased and bartered for a darling mustard yellow wallet and I'm so excited about it. Sad as it may sound, this is my first real wallet. I feel like a new woman. Anyway, I'll be back to Florence a lot so if anyone is interested in anything let me know. Florence has a lot to offer. Handbags, scarves, belts, jackets, jewelry (my personal favorite) and soccer jerseys (sorry, no gelato). Life is good here, it's a little rainy but it's great!
