Trip to Europe: Florence
July 2010

The first two pictures are of Basilica di Santa Maria Novella, by the train station of the same name, the city`s principal Dominican church. Begun in 1246, it was completed in a relatively early 1360, but finally consecrated in 1420. Picture three is from the San Lorenzo market near the cathedral of the same name, where you can buy shirts, leather goods, tapestries, imported items and more for good prices. Picture four and five is again the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. Pictures six to eight are in the Galeria d`Uffizi, home to Italian classical art from Botticelli to Raphael to Caravaggio, including a view of the Ponte Vecchi from inside and an ornate celing. Pictures nine and ten and the panoramic are by the Ponte Vecchio.
