Florence, Italy

Florence (Firenze) was smaller than Rome but it was nice to be in a more intimate area.  Rome was huge!  In Florence, all the main sights were within walking distance of each other.  And since it is rooted in the Tuscany countryside, the bus trip around the city was beautiful, even though it wasn't in the sunflower season.

Ponte Vecchio

Winery we ate at for dinner

The tour guide found out it was our honeymoon

The Duomo from afar

The tiny people at the top... it's huge!

Unfinished works by Michelangelo... awesome to see how he made the statues

I used to think the Statue of David by Michelangelo was like human size, maybe a little taller.  No.  He is huge!  Michelangelo did nothing halfway. He was go big or go home.

I need about 4 of my hands to grab one of those buns.
