Battistero di San Giovanni

The Florence Baptistery or Battistero di San Giovanni (Baptistry of St. John) is a religious building in Florence (Tuscany), Italy, which has the status of a minor basilica. The octagonal Baptistry stands in both the Piazza del Duomo and the Piazza di San Giovanni, across from the Duomo cathedral and the Giotto bell tower (Campanile di Giotto). It is one of the oldest buildings in the city, built between 1059 and 1128. The architecture is in Florentine Romanesque style.

      1. I never got to Sienna. The day we were to leave Florence, I ended up falling on the pavement right where you took this photo! I had a huge black eye – but there were more adventures that came out of this so I was not disappointed. That means I have a reason to go back!!! 🙂
