We spent our last day in Paris exploring the Luxembourg Gardens and walking the shops in the Latin Quarter. We flew from Paris to Florence Friday evening. We started our day today touring the Boboli Gardens in Florence or as the Italians say Firenze.The Boboli gardens were built by the Medici family grand dukes in the 1600‘s.The gardens are home to a collection of sculptures with some Roman antiquities.We attended mass at the Duomo and toured the cathedral after mass. The Duomo was started during the 13th century and finished in the 19th century Over 600 years to build. The fresco‘s of the last judgement inside the dome painted from 1572 to 1579 are stunning. Finished our day at Mattacena Tuscan enjoying some outstanding pasta. We have come to really appreciate the 2 hour dinners.
