More Firenze

No, we weren't the only tourists in Florence.

The highly popular doors of the Duomo's Baptistry. These are replicas; the original doors were moved to the adjacent museum after they were nearly destroyed in a 1960's flood.

Inside the dome of the Duomo.

Some of the eye-catching pottery of Italy.

We enjoy some of the most tasty, well-presented, and inexpensive food we found in Florence; we became regulars at this place.
Miscellaneous factoid: Florence Nightingale was born in -- and named after -- the city of Florence. (Who knew?)
