Churches of Florence

P1010944
Not surprisingly Florence is full of amazing churches, this was my first stop in Italy so I hadn't hit "church overload" yet, which means I took way too many photos.

While there is no doubt the Duomo is stunning and enormous, but my favorite was the last church I visited, the Bascilica de San Miniato al Monte (the last three photos above.) It is an old church on a hill with amazing views of the city. It was dark and cool inside (a gift after a long hike up the hill to reach the church.) Better yet there was someone at the organ when I visited, nothing adds to the ambiance like music.

They are all beautiful. It's amazing how much stunning architecture there is in just one city. I remember Florence well, though it was over 40 years ago that I was there.
