PHOTO UPDATE!

29 May

I know, I know. It‘s been a long time coming, but here it is – a photo update! I’ve probably taken over 1000 pictures. These are just a few from Cinque Terre, Pisa and Florence, Italy.

The Mediterranean sea – shot from Cinque Terre, Italy.

The view from some gardens we explored in Florence. You can see the Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore (the large terracotta dome church). It is the most famous church in Florence. Below the marble floors lies relics from the Basilica of Santa Reparata, built in the 5th century.

The outside of the Duomo. Everything is tiled or marbled. It was probably the most intricate cathedral I’ve seen so far!

    Nice photos, Melissa! That statue is amazing and I am thoroughly jealous that you got to see it — it's the Rape of the Sabine Women. Can't wait to see more! – EMILY
