Day 4: Firenze

We left the Hotel in Rome by Train to get to the Hotel Byron in Florence. The hotel was much nicer here. We have our own beds and a bigger bathroom. Score!
We first walked for lunch at Pino’s. Then we walked to see the Duomo cathedral.

We also learned about the Gates of Paradise leading into the Florence Baptistery. These were bronze doors built by Lorenzo Ghiberti and were named by Michelangelo. Twenty panels on the doors were depicting the life of Christ in the New Testament. DSCF0471
