It is festive here but not too crowded. Tonight the Christmas tree lights at the Duomo will be lit, but I’ll stay away from joining that crowded of onlookers. The F-Light Festival begins on the 12th (F for Firenze). Lights, accompanied by music, reflected on the Ponte Vecchio, San Lorenzo, and S.S.Annunicate.
This morning I slept until 8!!. I stopped for a cappuccino, before going to the La Badia, my favorite prayer church. Another cappuccino before visiting San Marco, the Dominican convent where Fra Angelio painted frescos on each cell wall. It is the first church/museum that I visit upon arriving in Florence. It never disappoints.
