Italy: Firenze!

Bursting with its glorious Renaissance art and architecture, Florence welcomed us with warm sunshine yesterday. We strolled all day throughout this historical city, visiting the palaces, tombs and churches of the the Medici, the original banking power family of the Renaissance. Ghosts of Cosimo and Lorenzo de Medici, and artists such as Donatello and Michaelangelo followed us throughout the buzzing stratas and piazzas. We started and ended our day up at the Piazzale Michaelangelo that overlooks the city. Bathed in orchres and terra cottas, this Firenze skyline shows two of the most famous landmarks in Florence, Giotto's Tower and Brunelleshi's Dome, which tops the gorgeous Florence duomo. We people watched, drank wine and listened to the street musicians while the sun was setting.
