Quick trip to Florence for some sightseeing and a birthday party!

The main entrance of the Duomo's church (called Santa Maria del Fiore).

Lovely window.

Palazzo Vecchio.

Another shot to include the arches on the right hand side.

Europe, Italy and most importantly FLORENCE!

A close up of some of the creston on Palazzo Vecchio facade.

Marta and the David (copy)

I can't seem to remember the name of the statue, but it's important nonetheless...

Piazza della Libert, not exactely in the center of Florence but closer to my house...

The day was so windy that pigeons were not airborne and preferred to stay on the ground...

Marta sleeping with Micia..

At night in Sesto, there was a strange concert (quite shite)...

The view from my country house.

The country house that we should restore in the near future...

Going towards the villa.

Not sure what it is, but I have seen this creston for ages since I was little...

Some ham in the making.

Yes it IS meant to be mouldy!

Mmmmmmmm flasks...

The pine tree in the middle is actually ME. It was planted when I was born!

More communal shots.

We then moved to the saddest pub on Earth, called "THE COCKNEY".

Beer was so SHITE that it tasted like cold urine, and they only had 1 type despite having at least 5 different brands on display.

Alessio and Gianfranco were quite sick the morning after due to the beer...

Ah! I forgot, England all over the place, shame that the only important thing (beer) was actually below standard!

Sadness in action.

A nice touch of purple!

The church of Santissima Annunziata.

Lovely shot! The church is massively baroque.

More Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizzi.
