Day 7: Siena and Firenze

We took a day trip to Siena today. Siena was one of the prettiest cities in Italy in my opinion. It was so small and charming.

While there we saw the Duomo di Siena. It combined French Gothic ,Tuscan Romanesque architecture, and Classical architecture. The inside had mosaic floors and a beautiful dome. Michelangelo and Bernini had many statues inside including Michelangelo’s statue of Saint Paul. One thing that really stood out to me in the cathedral was the use of distance and a vanishing point to make it look larger. IMG_20130527_104407_763


After spending the rest of our time in Siena eating and shopping, we returned to Florence to shop one last time and eat at Pino’s one last time. Pino’s was our eating spot in Florence because we ate almost every meal there. I ended up spending almost all of my money in the markets buying purses, jewelry, scarfs, and souvenirs for family and friends.
