Firenze: Santa Croce
Given my recent obsession with Assassin’s Creed II, I went to my photos from a few years ago and went through my photos of Firenze (Florence), Italy. While going through them, I found this photo of the Basilica di Santa Croce, or Church of the Holy Cross. It’s a pretty spectacular building. I didn’t go inside it, but the facade is incredibly impressive.
I didn’t go in, by the way, because we were on our way to a wine, bread, olive and truffle oils tasting that was set up by our guide. The lemon olive oil was so good, I bought a bottle. I’m pretty sure that I was overwhelmed by the constant barrage of incredible architectures and sights, so I focused on getting to the tasting rather than enjoying the sights. Too bad.
This shot was taken from the top of the Duomo. It certainly evokes great memories.
