My husband and I took a trip to Italy this past summer, and eventually I'll show you all of our pictures. :) We spent the most time in Florence, so I have to split those pictures into several posts. I shared our pictures of the Ponte Vecchio a few weeks ago. These are our pictures of the Cathedral (Duomo in Italian), which is huge. The square surrounding it isn't big enough to allow you get a picture of the whole building.
In the pictures we had seen of this building before our trip, the marble always looked black and white. Turns out it's actually Christmas colors! If you look closely, you can see the green and pinkish-red marble.
This is the bell tower, which is attached to the cathedral.
It's surprisingly light inside. The dome was beautifully painted. We also happened across a high school choir on tour that sang a song. The acoustics and echoes were unbelievable. What an awesome, worshipful moment!
Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy.
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
