We've just come home from a week in Florence and Venice. They are mind-blowingly beautiful. I knew that they were special places but I hadn't realised that everything was so lovely: wherever you look. For example, above is the ceiling in the Baptistry in Florence. All that gold!
And this is a tiny bit of the floor. Imagine working out how many bits of marble of each colour you would need. And then cutting them.
Even on my little phone camera, it was impossible not to take beautiful photos of Florence.
We climbed the hill opposite the main part of the city.
Not a bad lunch time view.
There's more, lots more, but you may have had enough of my holiday snaps for now. But if you haven't been there: you should really, really, really go.
