It grows on you.

I love this approach to the Duomo.  I walk this path every day.  It never grows old.

I love this angle of the Duomo as well.  The thousands of tourists gather everyday at the facade of the cathedral, which is clean and polished.  I prefer the gritty side view.  It seems more authentic.

The side view is actually more authentic, because the fancy facade of the church is a 19th-century confection.  The side is the original building.

Gritty and real and I love it.  How lucky I feel to see it daily!
