Italy: Florence (Firenze)

Welcome to the birthplace of the Renaissance!

Let’s go!

The scale of Brunelleschi’s dome is mind-blowing (Do you see the people?)

Sign of the times: a highly-visible security presence.

  1. Frank, so wonderful to bump into you at the dentist office in Albuquerque this week. I have enjoyed your footprints and look forward to seeing some of the same sites that you have posted from Florence, Sorrento, and Pompeii. We leave in a week. Thanks for sharing your adventures. What a life!
    Ciao – Tammy
