Duomo Cathedral, Milan, Italy

Winter Wonderland in Milan. Duomo Cathedral in Milan, Italy. Two of my favorite things! Snow and a beautiful old church!

Florence, Italy: I remember walking down a small alleyway, making a sharp turn, and finding the magnificent Duomo stand directly in front of me. It took my breath away! One of the most incredible pieces of architecture I've ever seen. And a hike up to the Santa Croce church is a must because the view from atop is like no other. You have historic, cobbled-stoned Florence on one side, and the lush, rolling Tuscan countryside on the other as a sharp contrast. I could have sat up there all day.

Florence Duomo at night. Of all the places I have been, Florence is my favorite place. Gotta go soon. Whos coming?
