Firenze, Day 2

I had time for some more sightseeing this morning, before heading to the meeting venue to work.  The weather is much better today, so hopefully these photos do Florence more justice than yesterday's.
The Arno River, looking towards the Ponte Vecchio

The frescoes inside the dome, depicting the Last Judgment, by Vasari & Zuccari
Climbing the dome...

...it's a long climb!

View of Florence from atop the dome

View of the bell tower (designed by Giotto) and Florence from the dome

Leather market

Shops on the Ponte Vecchio

The Fortezza da Basso, built by the de 'Medici family (and the site of the meeting I'm attending)

The Basilica di Santa Croce

Lunch at a Lampredotta (sandwich stand)

Dinner with some Dutch and Belgian WIP colleagues
