Florence is a stunning place to visit, much like all of Italy which is my favourite country to visit.

Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore – Florence

The first thing that strikes you when you approach the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo Cathedral) is its shear enormity, so it comes as no surprise that it’s the third largest in the world.  Being Florence’s most visited tourist attraction it dominates central Florence and when approaching from the surrounding streets its stunning marble cladding is simply impossible to miss.

Fiesole – Florence

Fiesole is a charming small Tuscan village which, due to its elevated position, affords fantastic views of Florence.   The town also has a number of historical sites and churches and provides respite from the bustling streets of Florence.

St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds

Originally the parish church of St James, the cathedral was developed over many centuries and in 1914 the Cathedral of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich was created.  More recently, a new tower, cloisters and chapels were added thanks to the Millennium project.   As a consequence the Cathedral is a sparkling combination of the old and the new.

York Minster

York Minster is one of the largest places of worship in Europe.  The Minster was built over a period of 250 years, between 1220 and 1472 and, at the time, was at the forefront of gothic architecture.  Like Notre Dame in Paris, York minster suffered a serious fire in 1984 which was apparently caused by a bolt of lightning, resulting in £2.25m worth of damage.  The project to restore the Minster to its former glory was completed one year ahead of schedule in 1988.
