Today is our last day in Florence. The last couple of days has gone by so fast. We have been so busy! Today we had two lectures about the cracks in the Duomo and how the dome was designed and built by Brunelleschi. We also were able to climb to the top of the dome and see the cracks and instrumentation closer up. Later we had a guided tour of the museum of the Duomo where various statues and pieces of art from the Duomo and the Baptistry have been placed. Everyone is having a great time here in Florence though our feet are tired from walking all over the city and climbing the hundreds of steps. Most of us have been to the best Gelateria in Florence several times already!
