I took these pictures a few weeks ago, but haven't been able to upload them. Finally my internet is being somewhat cooperative! These are from the Duomo museum. The church was originally meant to be at least twice the size that it is now, but construction was stopped when Siena was hit by the plague in the 14th century. If the church had been finished, it would have been one of the largest churches in the world. The unfinished part is where the museum is now, and you can climb up to the top of the facade. That's where I took these pictures. And I think I have to say that a sunset over Tuscany was just as pretty as any that I have seen over the Pacific Ocean, or even Lake Superior.
