I didn’t expect, what I found, when I arrived on the top of the Duomo di Santa Maria Nascente.  The walls are decorated with more than 2,000 sculptures and 135 pinnacles and they are all within reach, at least you think they are. It didn’t matter, that the weather wasn’t clear, because there was so much to admire right in front of you.

I can’t believe that it took me so long to explore this miracle of architecture on the third largest church of the world.

And I could have stayed there for hours, but as it was a daytrip, and we decided to have some true italian shopping and a bit dolce far niente with dolci too.

So what would be better than visit the Faliero Sarti boutique?  And it didn’t take me long to make the decision. Still fascinated by the aging stone and marble shades of the Cathedral it had to be this one:
