A Snapshot From / Florence

Can’t Resist a Libreria

In the Piazza del Duomo of Florence the main attraction is Santa Maria del Fiore, the city’s iconic red-domed cathedral. (If you look closely at the photo below, you can see the green and white marble of the church reflected in the shop window.)

If you are a lover of books and the Italian language, you may also be drawn to this local libreria (bookstore, not to be confused with a library – biblioteca).

I always relish the chance to take a break from the tourist’s schedule and wander through a libreria whenever they present themselves. Filled with colorful books in the language I covet, and typically cool and serene, they are a welcome rest for fatigued travelers.
