Next I went into the Bapistry- one of the oldest buildings in Florence. This is a small octaganol building at the front of the Duomo. The ceiling is covered in beautiful mosaics- breathtaking!
Lunchtime = pizza time. After refueling I walked to the National Archelogy Musuem. There are two floors to the museum. The first floor is full of Egyptian artifacts and the second floor is full of pottery (boring). The Eyptian stuff was okay and it reminded my of being in Eypyt. The best thing was a mummy that they had cut through the cloth of. I could see the many layers of cloth and bones!
Walked to the train station and caught a bus for Fiesole. Apparently there is a great view of the city from up there. 20 minutes later I arrived. The view was great and even better when I walked up a very steep path to a little park with a lookout. The dome of the Duomo high above the rest of the buildings.
Went back to my room and packed by bag ready to move on from Florence.
