Caption: I’ve never met a sunset that I don’t like but watching the sun sink below the horizon over the Ponte alla Grazie is pretty beautiful.

Caption: How much stone did it take to build the Duomo? If only we could ask Brunelleschi. Walking by the world famous Duomo on the way to my Italian class every week and then learning about it in my Renaissance Art and Architecture class is just too cool.

CET organized trip to a sunset yoga class on the beach? Sign me up!! Nothing more relaxing than a yoga class with all my friends next to the Arno River sunset as a back drop.

Ponte Vecchio may translate to “Old Bridge” but trust me this view never gets old.

Even though there are about 10 different shades of blue in this photo, there is no way anyone could be feeling blue looking at this!

There is definitely not shortage of gelaterias in Florence! A nice cone of gelato on the way home from class has become the norm for me!

 

Warning: The Cathedral is larger than it appears. We climbed the tower in the Museo Civico in Siena’s Palazzo Pubblico for this AMAZING view. It was most definitely worth walking up all 400 steps.
