On the way to Cortona, I (see foregrond) spent three days in Florence (see background).
There, I met the Ponte Vecchio...
... and the dome of Florence.
The tourists usually gathered on the Piazza della Signoria. One evening, we enjoyed a beer there and I must say that I was really nice atmosphere - very lively and - how surprising - very Italian.
Besides coffee and wine, we (and particularly Volckmar) especially enjoyed the Italian icecream.
The church Santa Croce.

The famous museum of the Uffizi.
Some other church.
May I introduce: Marcus Ulpius Traianus, emperor at the very peak of Roman power.
