Florence - farewell

After 3 days in and around Florence (way too short) we leave this morning for Conegliano in the region of Veneto.

We find the Duomo in the centre of the city to be our magnet. Day and night we are attracted to it and captivated, even overwhelmed, by its splendour. It's amazing to ponder the vision and faith of the people who started the enormous building project knowing that they and generations of descendants would not see it finished. Their plans included features for which the technology was not yet developed.

As seen here, even at night this is an impressive building.
