One of the places to have the best view of Florence is from the Piazzale Michelangelo. Not only we can see the dome of the Duomo, the whole city is almost all within our sight.
When I had the view of Florence in front of me, I immediately fell in love with the fact that all the buildings and constructions were in the similar yellow-brown color. It was the unification and simplicity that highlight the beauty of the city.
While enjoying the view, I couldn’t help but admire how much Europeans appreciate their cultures and heritages from their ancestors. I bet what I saw was not much different than what the people, who lived hundreds years ago in Florence saw. Wish we could learn the same way to treat historical remains in China before it is too late.
