Photo of the Week: Duomo

IMG_0099Florence, Italy

This week I am reminiscing back to 10 years ago when we visit Florence on our VERY  first trip abroad.  I remembered falling head over heels in love with this city standing on top of the Campanile di Giotto.  From the bell tower, you can see the tiny people atop of the famous Duomo and the rest of the city spread out below.

Photo of the Week: Spiraled

Surprisingly, one of the most photographed pieces at the Vatican museum is not one of the numerous artworks, but this double helix staircase, located at the exit of the museum. There are two access points at the bottom – one for people going up and the other for people going down.  This graceful wrought iron staircase was designed by Guiseppe Momo who was inspired by the original stairs designed by Donato Bramante.

Photo of the Week: St. Peter’s

We’re back! Happy New Year everyone.  The first post of 2015 is a photo taken from our first trip together back in 2007 to Italy.  Memories!

We made the pilgrimage to the Vatican and scaled the 551 steps of winding narrow stairs to get to the top of St Peter’s basilica.  This is the sweeping panoramic view from the top of the dome overlooking the square and the rest of Rome in the distance. We fell in love with the ancient city and it helped ignite our love of traveling.
