A Dome with a View

You don't have to be spiritual to feel quite entranced by the beauty of Florence's churches. They alone would be an incentive to return, while the 12,600 uses of #DuomoDiFirenze on Instagram seem to agree. It certainly had room for a lot of viewing… 

WHEN NOT IN ROME

SEE THE DOME. Rome can keep its colosseum, Florence has its beauties aplenty. 
I will be honest - the exterior of the cathedral created great expectations. Coupled with the disney-long queue to get inside, we were expecting wonders. In short, we were ever so slightly underwhelmed. 
Not that this stopped me snapping away of course - I did it all for you guys. However, the Rotunda in front of the cathedral is another story… 


LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION  

Santa Croce church was the true star for me. Inside and out, I was Disney's Joy from start to finish. 
Lighting wasn't going to win any Oscars, but the art department were certainly in strong contention! As for best film and actor, I think I found the set for Tom Hanks next Da Vinci code...
My dad then informed me that I need to read Brown's new Novel, Inferno. Sadly with two books a week for a Literature degree, Professor Langdon might have to wait. 
My sister could look stylish in a bin bag, complete with Ray Bans I coveted for three days straight!
