While sitting in our apartment writing this post, we are being serenaded by a fairly raucous but talented swing band down below in front of the Duomo. Life does not get much better than this.
Today we visited the renowned Santa Croce Basilica with its beautiful chapels, paintings, and sculptures. Within the Basilica are the burial plots of the really big names in the art world; Danti, Michaelangelo, Gallileo, DaVinci.
In addition to the artists' burial plots mentioned in Part 1, we also found Marchiavelli's and Donatello's. As part of this trip we were able to visit Michaelangelo's house a couple of streets over. There is so much history here in Florence, it is doubtful we will be able to see it all in this one month trip. We may just have to return here another time!
