Florence is a city of many narrow streets, churches, and vendors . . . it reminded me of the condominiums and shared wall residences we have here in the cities of the United States, but they thought of it first!!!! LOL!!! There is lots of walking . . . lots of Vespas (motorcycles) . . . and very small cars (Peugeot . . . Fiat . . . Honda Jazzy AKA Fit . . . Toyota Yaris . . . etc.).
The Duomo (cathedral) has a distinctive skyline . . . it was started in 1296 . . . it is fascinating to see the different styles change in parts of the cathedral as the centuries changed from Romanesque . . . to Gothic . . . to Baroque in some of the buildings . . . how totally fascinating!!!!
