    Long time no post... or I should say no time to process photos, no post ;) We're on the roads almost each and every weekend in the last weeks. This past weekend we visited Tuscany - round trip with 2 other couples. Not a dedicated photo trip but it was amazing time spent with great friends. We took accommodation in three places - Florence, Siena and Pisa. So the schedule was very busy in 4 days total. My personal highlight was San Gimigniano on a way from Siena to Pisa.

    This photo was taken from Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence and features "The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore is the cathedral church (Duomo) of Florence, Italy, begun in 1296 in the Gothic style to the design of Arnolfo di Cambio and completed structurally in 1436 with the dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi. The exterior of the basilica is faced with polychrome marble panels in various shades of green and pink bordered by white and has an elaborate 19th century Gothic Revival facade by Emilio De Fabris... The cathedral complex includes the Baptistry and Giotto's Campanile. The three buildings are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site covering the historic centre of Florence and are a major attraction to tourists visiting the region of Tuscany. The basilica is one of Italy's largest churches, and until the modern era, the dome was the largest in the world. It remains the largest brick dome ever constructed." - more here...

    Thanks for looking!
    Your feedback is always appreciated ;)
