Throwback Thursday: Florence's Duomo in the Evening!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

As many of you know, we love visiting Italy.  We have been there many times together, and each time planned to return.  Florence is one of our favorite cities.  Pictured above is the Duomo.* This picture was taken last May.  It was our last stop, prior to flying back to Paris, and then home!

And as soon as the world regains its equilibrium, we are planning to go back for a visit.  We are planning to explore new areas of Italy, and France.

 

*Florence Cathedral, formally the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, is the cathedral of Florence, Italy. It was begun in 1296 in the Gothic style to a design of Arnolfo di Cambio and was structurally completed by 1436, with the dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi.Wikipedia

Interesting that you mention Murder In -- my husband was suggesting it might be interesting - I'll give him your recommendation.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- that's what's important to do...have a plan for what you want to do as soon as we can all get out again. I love your plan.

There's a lot to love about Italy!  My mom and I visited October 2018, short stops at different ports, just enough time for day trips to Florence/Pisa, Rome/Vatican City and Naples/Pompeii/Sorrento/Amalfi Coast.  Would definitely like to go back with more time to look around in more detail.  Bill

Lottie Kendall here is my caveat.  French movies delve into the stories of character as well as the mystery, so it does not look like our 45 minute shows with guns and immediate solutions.  There is the characters personae and their interaction with each other as well as the other parties.  For some this may be slow, but for us it is perfect, its has substance...A

Kathy Streib I am feeling an easing in the atmosphere.  We are all following the rules, distancing and such, and I was delighted that the British Prime Minister has been moved out of ICU and is on his way to recovery...every little bit of good news brings that lightening.  A

Liz and Bill Spear Both of us are lovers of Italy and France.  I am going to start improving my Italian and learn more, so that I have a bigger vocabulary than one for shopping and eating...Now, I just rely on my French and add "a's and o's" to French words...LOL A

We were in Italy a few years ago and we both loved Florence. I would like to return and visit other areas in Italy. Hopefully, we will do this.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - Alexandra, that's why this series appeals to me. I'm not a fan of blood and guts, quick solutions -- boring! I much prefer Agatha Christie mysteries and other more cerebral crime novels/movies.

Hi Ron and Alexandra, Thanks for sharing the beautiful picture.  Looks like we will be putting off our summer trips this year.  But sometime I would like to go to Italy.

Lottie Kendall We just saw Episode 6 I believe, and it was definitely cerebral, each episodes is over 90 minutes.  It was filmed in the Sommes River Region, and I am realizing how much of my French geography i have forgotten...A

In my morning meditation, I visualized and experienced the excitement of visiting France and Italy and ?? So much to look forward to in life. Thanks for sharing this photo. 

PS. We watched two episodes of Murder In last night. We both love it. Such great mysteries and love the acting and scenery.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD we watched Episode 6 last night, it was stellar.  It is like seeing a full length movie.  Thanks to that series I have a big list of places to visit in France...We would love to be with you when you head to Europe.  A
