Welcome to May!
We returned from a 10 day trip to Italy last week, so I'd like to share some photos. I've been there a few times, since my husband has family there. His relatives are always so kind as to give us some kind of behind the scenes look at a country they are very proud of.
This time, we traveled through Tuscany. It was the trip of a lifetime.
From Florence to its small towns, we covered a lot within a short amount of time. I'll tell you more about it another day. Today I'm going to concentrate on the photos.
Here's a photo of Florence from afar:
And a close-up of Filippo Brunelleschi's famous dome of the cathedral of Florence (there's a related picture book recommendation about this Renaissance architect in my next post):
And here's Florence's famous Ponte Vecchio, "Old Bridge," which is lined with shops:
Here are some close-ups:
And another one from afar:
There you can see Ponte Vecchio on the left, as well as the Arno River.
To be continued...
