Rather than try and pack in the numerous art galleries, churches and sights, we opted to wander and really enjoyed it. We knew we would stumble upon the Duomo; it's a hard place to miss as it's the largest Catholic cathedral in the world. It was stunning. We're noticing that it's hard to describe these massive monuments because we can't get a full view of them standing right next to them in person. Everything is so close and tight-knit that it's hard to take in from one angle.
There is a portrayal of the last judgement on the ceiling of the big dome. We enjoyed the free view from the ground rather than paying for a lift up, but it was impressive nonetheless.
Wandering, we found a farmer's market. It was Saturday and definitely something we would have found ourselves doing on a normal Saturday at home. But being in a foreign place where things are just a little (or a lot) different brings new sights, smells and tastes. Our favorite find was the to-die-for prosciutto.
