Stepping out onto the streets of Italy sipping a delicious cappuccino and flaky pastry we headed to the church (Florence Cathedral aka Duomo di Firenze) and the joined the queue to take the steps to the top for the spectacular views of the city streets. The narrow cobbled streets form a maze of old, family owned bakeries, coffee shops and the more upscale shopping districts that Florence is known for.
The Streets of Florence, Italy
The view from the top of the Duomo in Florence, Italy provides a wonderful view of the historic, twisted streets below. The Cathedral sits in the center of it all and is one of the most visited landmarks in Italy. Built in the Byzantine style it stands out from the more traditional/Gothic architecture that other Italian churches are often known for.
