Florence 3 - SkyWatch Friday

A glimpse of sky through the dome of the Battistero di San Giovanni (Baptistry of St. John).

The Baptistry of St. John is located adjacent to the of Basilica de Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo) in the Piazza del Duomo. It was built between the years 1059 and 1128. It has the status of minor basilica and was the location of all baptisms in the city of Florence up until the end of the 19th century.

We were blessed to have a personal tour by the assistant rector of the Duomo who is an American priest from New York.
