Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore


Basilica di Santa Maria Del Fiore (C) Tiner

The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore or "Basilca of Sant Mary of the Flower" is the most popular church in Florence due to its size, location and history. Also known as Il Duomo di Firenze or "Domo" the church was started in 1296 and finished in 1436. It's located in the heart of Florence and only a few blocks from Lenardo di Vinci's famous David sculpture. 

The Basilica's brick dome is the largest in the world every constructed and tourists are able to hike up a spiral staircase to enjoy views from the dome's peak. 

If you plan on visiting Florence, it's highly recommended to tour the interior of the Domo and if you are feeling brave, take the hike to its top!

Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre (C) Tiner

Enjoy some photographs of Cinque Terre, Italia. Cinque Terre, known of the "Five Lands," comprises of five small vilages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore, Each town is beautiful  and very picturesque along the Italian Riviera.

Each town has it's own unique charm and character. The towns are connected by hiking trails in the Cinque Terre National Park, which is a Unesco World Heritage Site. If you don't feel adventurous or are unable to do the hike, the towns are connected via railway.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit Italy or are planning a trip, I highly recommend visiting the Cinque Terre.
