April 2007
Overlooking the city

We walked up 463 steps to reach the top of the Florence Duomo (church).

The breath-taking view was worth the climb!

Jen's sister, Janda, studied abroad in college and lived in Florence. She told us about her favorite panino (sandwich) shop. We HAD to try it!! Janda--look familiar?

Here Jen is standing outside the door of the apartment where Janda lived.

Have you ever felt like you just couldn't handle touring one more duomo? Go to Italy and you might just share in that thought. I was so tired I felt like I had to sit this one out. Johnny went through the duomo, and I napped on the steps. I'm not sure which of us had a better time!

Ah, beautiful Firenze!

We were feeling quite adventurous one evening and decided to get around like the locals--by bike. The hotel let us borrow bikes and we were on our way. We had a total blast!!
The real talent here is that I was able to get my camera out, snap a picture of Johnny in the dark mind you, all while NOT falling off of my own bike. Pure talent I tell ya!

Love it. My faves are Jen napping in front of the church and Johhny on the bike (with groceries?).

Looks like you had a fab time! That does look like my apartment door & I will never forget the panini at Antico Noe!
