trip to the duomo in florence

After years of studying architecture and learning about the Florence Cathedral, my husband and I were finally able to see the long awaited beauty in person. The duomo (dome) is so massive that you can see it from all over town despite the fact that it sits tightly between lots of other buildings. It is the largest masonry dome in the world and is an incredible piece of architecture. These photos of it were taken over the course of the day as we walked back and forth through town to see all of the sights. Hopefully, they'll give you a little taste of Italy as I prep the rest of my photos to post over the next few days. Stay tuned for more!
