Thanks, Dave. Florence is a well photographed city and it is hard to find new angles. Even after we took this, we saw a very similar picture in a guide book. Oh, well....

Now you can say things like 'remember that time when we crashed that Gucci party in Florence?'!

Nanci likes to say, "I've been to many museums with David, but never like this!". :) I kind of wish I had of backed up just a bit so you could actually see the lion in this photo better.

It has been a fun month and Tuscany combined with the Cinque Terre last month made for a nice visit to one of our favorite places. We will definitely need to start the diet soon though! Thanks for reading and commenting!
