As we entered the town, I took this picture which reminds me of a street scene in Beijing (odd, right?).
From our hotel window, I was able to take these two photos of San Michele in Foro (foro means "forum"; the church was built on a Roman forum). I didn't even have to lean so far as to cause D palpitations.
Wonderful designs. I still don't know how these are created; I'll ask Sharon tomorrow and see if she has an answer (should have thought about that many photos ago).
This is St.Michael whose wings move.
Two more pictures of the outside of the church:
Looking up from the street:
A small gargoyle and friends:
An unexpected design element in an out-of-the-way place on the church. /Check out the brick work full of different angles.
A really outstanding bit of bas relief on, if I remember correctly, a bank.
Just an interesting building with great windows:
A clock/bell tower and other assorted pictures of the town:
It's only right to end with Puccini:
Tomorrow - Florence!
