The View from the Dome
The first thing we did after dropping off our bags was make a bee-line towards the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, more commonly known as the Duomo of Florence. How could I not go straight for the dome, after reading Brunelleschi's Dome? Seeing the dome up close, and actually walking through the structures, was amazing. The views of the city were so beautiful we didn't want to come down!
