Day 5 – Florence

Posted on July 4, 2014

The Duomo is big.

The day started with packing and preparations for our train journey from Rome to Florence. We headed out fairly early and participated in some run-of-the-mill walking, training, waiting, walking, training until we finally arrived in Florence.

After checking in and a rest for lunch, we decided to walk to The Duomo and take a look (it’s a short walk from where we’re staying). Unfortunately, it was closed by the time we got there. But we looked at what we could from the outside. It’s huge. Had no chance of fitting it in frame. I’m hoping to go inside tomorrow and climb to the top. I’ve climbed it in Assassin’s Creed before, so should be pretty easy the second time.

The Duomo from behind... see that amazing 13th century scaffolding?

Nothing much exciting today, so no photos really. Mostly just travelled and walked a bit. Should have a more exciting day tomorrow.
