Day 3 Blog Post
Today we visited Florence. Florence was a very large city in comparison to the other areas that we have been able to visit thus far in the trip. This was a very interesting city because you could have the pleasure of viewing the ancient architecture of cobblestone, while seeing paved road within a few feet. This seems to be a city rooted in its history, but yet still innovated towards modern development.
The Firenze museo (the archaeological museum) that we visited was jam packed with Etruscan artifacts and I was especially impressed with the original Chimera and it amazed me that it was so well preserved using the lost wax method and that I had been able to see the actual statue of a picture I have seen many times.
The view of the Duomo in Florence was amazing in its stature and the several flights of stairs were well worth the trip in order to get a great view of the city, as well as get an in-depth look at the roofing system.
