Morning in Firenze

One thing I love best to do when visiting a busy city is to wake up with the sun and take to the streets while they are free of travelers and traffic. Here’s a few snapshots from Florence this morning, while the others slept and the sun’s rays were still gentle.

  5. David in mourning is very touching. Don’t know about the giant tartaruga though. I miss Firenze! Haven’t been in a few years.
