FlorenceFive Stays Another Night


FlorenceFive Stays Another Night

The past couple days have been quite busy! On Wednesday, we visited the abbey church of S. Godenzo to study its structure as a comparison to the destroyed S. Reparata. We also took a tour through gardens and the Bernard Berenson collection at The Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, Villa I Tatti. We were greeted graciously with tea and cookies as Professor Toker presented some materials for archive at the center. Yesterday, we enjoyed a free day around Florence, spending hours in the Bargello, Palazzo Pitti, and Uffici Gallery, and we took in the view down the Arno on Ponte Vecchio.

Our early wake up for a day of travel today led to a flight cancellation by 6:00am. Kindly, the airline set us up at the Hilton Florence Metropole, and we've had a relaxing day of rest before we're Pittsburgh bound again tomorrow by 4:00am. Here's a pic of us on Thursday evening in front of the Duomo.

USA, here we come!
