    • Thank you, Theadora.
      It is nice city full of amazing masterpieces of architecture and other art. And the sky is almost all the time is deep blue. Sometimes it goes grey or even almost black but not for a long.
      Have a nice day!

  2. Amazing city, beautiful Cathedral; by the way: what about the astonishing bell tower that was planned by Giotto? In my opinion that’s a great masterpiece!

    • Thank you for visiting my blog and comment.
      This lovely city is full of masterpieces and for me personally hard to make any preference. Anyway, I agree the bell tower is one of them for sure.
