I cannot wait to set my eyes on this beauty again:

Santa Maria del Fiore_14 Sept 2013_DSCN5010Santa Maria del fiore… in Firenze, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.

On Monday, I expect to be enjoying a stroll in this magnificent city. Needless to say, I really look forward to my forthcoming holiday in Italy.
