For those who don’t know Helen’s my art history teacher. She’s… enthusiastic. Shall we say. Anyway, last Friday we took a tour around Florence to see the inside of the Baptistery and to go to San Miniato, a church on a hill that overlooks the city of Florence.
Below, a closer shot of the ceiling. Each row of images symbolizes something different- scenes from the life of Christ, the passion, the disciples, etc.
I felt like I was back in New Zealand right after… tons and tons of stairs later, we finally reached the top of the hill and the church of San Miniato. We stayed and toured the church and listened to the Gregorian chants at 530. Below is the view from near the top, closer to Piazza Michelangelo.
