Europe - Day 11

Wednesday morning we got up early to beat the lines and go up into the dome of the Duomo. We got there a little early and got a cappuccino while we waited. The little cafe had the cutest cups and I wish they sold them so I could have brought one home!

Us at the top of the dome. We didn't get any good pictures of the hike up but it's very narrow and rather steep in some places. Mike ended up filming the entire walk down but that will have to be saved for another time.
The view from the top.
After the Duomo we headed to the Pitti Palace so we could visit the Bobli Gardens.
So pretty! Mike called this the garden of randomness because nothing seemed to flow and we found random statues and sculptures that just didn't seem to fit such a pretty garden behind an old palace but what do we know?
Another view of the Ponte Vecchio
Our final big stop for the day was Piazzale Michaelangelo. This plaza has an amazing panoramic view of the city and I had fun using the panoramic function on our camera.
