Another famous monument opened in Florence this week and you can bet I was one one the first people through the door. And, I have another visit planned for this coming weekend.
Let’s just start an overview of the many works of wonder in this magnificent site.
First of all, check out the city square without the usual mob of tourists. Isn’t it heavenly?!
I begin my pictorial tour at the west wall of the church, just by the current entrance through the left hand side portal of the facade.
I’ll end part 1 with a view of this very funny (to me) poster announcing the secular fraternity of Fransciscans. I love how St. Francis is meeting Christ mid-air.
