Florence Cathedral

Florence’s cathedral complex which includes the Baptistery and Giotto’s Campanile are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The dome of the basilica is the largest brick dome ever constructed. Viewing the complex from a distance gave a good idea about how it dominates the skyline of this beautiful city.



These shots are the reflected image of the complex on the window pane of rooftop restaurant in Uffizi and the actual scene.
