Buona Notte

A beautiful evening means beautiful photos of a city that never seems to go to sleep. I thought you’d like to see Florence at night.

The sun is deciding to go down.

Centuries old, you can see the cathedral suffers from need of cleaning. Note the area to the left being cleaned right now.

One of the many cafes across from the cathedral. You can get pizza here until 4am.

The square stays alive just about all night.

In spite of the pollution damage and the damage done by birds, the cathedral is breath taking.

Medici Chapel, built by and for the Medicis.

I have decided not to alter any of the photos I share on this blog, so you get to see just what I see. The damage done by time and the elements, as well as humans who have loved graffiti since the start of time, is there to see. And, in spite of the negatives, the beauty shines through. Good night from the Unseasoned Traveler.
