Being Welcomed to Florence by Brunelleschiís Dome
Picture the scene: the end of a boring, two-hour flight from London-Gatwick to Florence on Meridiana. The plane is nearly full, the hour is bothersomely early, the turbulence has been hefty, and the cloud cover means that there hasnít been a single thing to look at out the window for the entire flight. Oh, and we forgot to bring a book.
And then, approaching the airport for landing, we dip below the clouds and out of the ether springs Brunelleschiís dome. And Giottoís belltower. And the spire of Santa Croce. And the Baptistery and the tower of the Palazzo Vecchio. What a view. Sometimes this is why it's worth the trouble to fly instead of take the train.
