Clive heads out at 7am to do some sightseeing. I have some chores to do first then I head out. Buy a bus to Ticket at the bar. Head to the bus stop and jump on the
first going to the centro.i get oft at the train station and walk to the Duamo.

I wait in a line that will allow entry when it opens in 35 minutes. The outside of the church is truly impressive. The decoration is endless and Ornate. The inside of the church is simple and void of even normal decoration. I take some picture and I head on to the Basilica of the Holy Cross.

It turns out to Closed for lunch. It's complicated but they alsp Require thighs and shoulders to be covered. I head across the river for athe panarama views from Piazale Michelango. It's a decent climb but the Views are to die for at the top.

I head back to the Airbnb via the covered market bridge. All the bridge stores are high end brand jewelery stores. I catch the right bus and back at the flat in record time.

Just one more thing a nite gelato. Then is complete. Bed time.
