Views of Florence

It’s been a little while since I published anything- because I was away in Florence! I had an absolutely brilliant time; Florence is an incredibly beautiful city, and I was lucky enough to get guided tours of various churches and galleries from my lecturers.

I also managed to get lots of views of Florence from a height- some of these photos are from close to the church of San Miniate al Monte, some are from the nearby hilltop town of Fiesole, and some are from the top of the Duomo (cathedral).
