This is Donatello's Mary Magdalen. She looks so incredibly sad.
Graffiti......this is an iron gate on the Ponte Vecchio. Those are locks that lovers have written their names on........you know ML + EL or Kari loves Mike or some such thing, and they attach the lock to the bar and throw away the key. When the gate gets too heavily covered with locks, the authorities come along and spend the day cutting the locks off! At least it doesn't permanently damage some of these treasures that are hundreds of years old.
Below is the famous view from Michelangelo Plaza showing the Baptistry, Bell Tower and Duomo.
This is the famous Ponte Vicchio. Along the bridge are shops, mostly expensive jewelry shops.
Next on the trip is Assisi, one of my favorite places.
