Postcard from... the Duomo

{ May 2011 - Florence, Italy } 


The official name is the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore or Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower in English. However, it is simply known as the Duomo. The facade of the cathedral in green, pink and white is beautiful, elaborate and yet soothing in its simplicity of colour. 

The dome is a masterpiece, and the gothic interior is vast and simple, yet filled with elaborate frescoes. This cathedral in Florence, Italy is in a class of its own.

  2. If you ever think about going to a beautiful place for vacation then Florence(specially Tuscany) is the right place to visit. My trip to Florance also the most memorable.
