My 3 day Italy trip - Firenze, outside San Miniato al Monte church, the San Miniato cemetery and the Piazzale Michelangelo - The 19th of September 2015


As we walked out of the Church of San Miniato al Monte to visit the cemetery enclosed within the outside walls of the complex where many notable figures have been buried (Carlo Collodi the creator of Pinocchio included) we came across a newly wedded couple I couldn't help photographing.

From there we walked down towards the Piazzale Michelangelo where the bronze cast of David could be seen facing Firenze. The view was magnificent once it captured the city centre with its outstanding buildings, as well as the Arno river.
We joined the crowd who was sitting about on the restaurant stalls and the steps of the Piazzale having a break and eating some of the local "delicacies" until we got on a bus heading into the city Central station.
