Another famous landmark 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. It’s kind of amazing. I love it this way.
I begin my pictorial tour at the west wall of the church, the wall on which the main doors to the church are located.
I’ll end part 1 with a view of this to me very funny poster announcing the secular fraternity of Fransciscans. I love how St. Francis is meeting Christ mid-air.
