Florence all day! Mass in Duomo, Michelangelo’s “David,” Cooking Class and more…

by Steve Ray on April 24, 2018

Today was all day Florence. We step back hundreds of years to marvelous Catholic culture of the Renaissance. What a beautiful and enchanting city full of history and art, good food and nice people.

We started our day by walking to Santa Croce Church (Holy Cross). This commemorates the finding of the true cross and is a Franciscan church—the largest Franciscan church in the world.  Besides marvelous art and history it also has the tombs of Galileo, Michelangelo, and Dante along with other luminaries.

Mass at the Duomo was marvelous and we could’ve spent an hour more discussing the amazing paintings inside the dome. Father Fran’s homily was excellent again!

We took off walking again through the city and came to the museum which houses Michelangelos “David“.

Everybody have the afternoon free to find a nice café or pizza shop, walk around revisiting the churches, shopping or resting.

We regrouped at 4:30 and walked to a exquisite experience. We had a fun cooking class in Florence and then we ate dinner after watching the chef prepare it (fantastic video of cooking class uploaded tomorrow). I hope you enjoy today!
