Florence Skyline

on March 8, 2014

postcards1_3From German Susi, after a trip to Florence in Italy, I was lucky enough to receive this card. I just love this stunning skyline and the beautiful cathedral! Florence is the capital of the Tuscany region but has a population of only 370,000 – sounds perfect to me! Considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence attracts thousands of history-loving tourists every year. I can see why! The domed cathedral – the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower – is probably its most famous landmark and took over 100 years to build (1296-1436), those were the days! Thank you Susi for this wonderful card!
