Rennaissance Capital Experience!

The walking tour of this city with Bell tower, Dome and bridge on the river was fantastic . The shopping areas were good and a great experience . One may like to incl Pisa and its Leaning Tower as part of tour as we did . The church with three colored marbles is very beautiful indeed . Architecture takeaways from construction of Dome are excellent . Breeze is cool, no. Chilling.
