We spent a few days camping on a hillside outside Florence.
It was the perfect retreat every evening from the hectic crowded streets of the city.
We spent a good portion of our time in and around the Duomo. The highlight was climbing to the top of the cupola on a narrow staircase between the inner and outer wall of the dome itself. The girls are still talking about it as one of the main events of the trip.
And of course we walked everywhere, browsed leather goods, walked some more, visited the market, ate ice cream and walked some more.
