Arriving at Santa Maria Novella, Firenze on Sunday brought us back to our time here in Florence a few years ago. Then everything was new and overwhelming. This time, familiarity brought with it a certain amount of comfort, yet our level of excitement and anticipation was not diminished. Charles and I had an interesting discussion about "been there, done that" or "checked that off my bucket list..." There was none of that for us. We discovered new vistas, explored new streets and eating establishments.
|It was a long arduous walk to Piazzale Michelangelo, but worth the climb!|
|Il Duomo, according to Charles, the 8th wonder of the world|
|We also decided it was time to tackle the Florentine Steak!|
|A task Charles took on with gusto!!|
We leave for Venice tomorrow and look forward to revisiting its wonders.
