Florence – Faith and Food
I am ending my series of blog on Italy with images from Florence. Italy is filled with churches and cathedrals but the Florence Cathedral is by far the grandest on my trip. One has to be there to fully comprehend its sheer size. The cathedral exterior is polychrome marbles of different colours. This grandeur and the use of marble made the cathedral one of a kind and a feast of the eyes. Apart from the Cathedral, I love a restaurant called Trattoria Sostanza. It is a very local restaurant where the menu is only in Italian. The food looks simple but the taste is beyond heaven.
