Day 04... Siena...Inside the Siena Cathedral

This photo was taken inside the Cathedral of Siena. I didn't even bother to take one from the Cathedral in Florence (though truth be told, I was too busy walking up the spiral staircase to see the view of the city). Siena is amazing, but this Cathedral defies description. It kinda reminds me of a zebra, but close up, all you can do is gasp at the structural beauty of the black and white marble. It truly takes your breath away. We were lucky to see it when the floor was uncovered to see the marble floor (which is typically covered in plywood to save it from wear and tear of tourist's feet.)
