Day 7 – Stairway to Heaven

Today was was an amazing last full day in Florence.  We started the day with an early breakfast at the convent before walking to Laboratori di Restauro Di Firenze. It was really cool – we saw the adoration of the magi (Leonardo da Vinci) being restored. It was fascinating to see really impressive art in the process of being restored. We had a quick lunch and then headed to the Duomo.  We climbed endless staircases but when we finally reached the top the view was more than worth it. We took so many photos! After the Duomo, we were able to see the baptistery of the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo). It was beautiful – the ceiling was gorgeous. After that we had several hours of free time to roam Florence. We were able to shop and sample some of the great cafés in Florence. To end the night, we gathered altogether and ate at Il David, which was great! All in all, it was a very satisfying day!
