Italy Day 7

Today we went to the town of Orvieto.  My love for clocks has not diminished so I had to take a picture of this amazing clock.  
This is the duomo of Orvieto.  duomo means cathedral, not dome, so that is why this cathedral is called a duomo even though there is no dome.  
This duomo is so magnificent because a miracle is believed to have occurred here.  During a mass, when the priest broke the host, the host bled.  This is why the duomo is so sacred.
I had to climb up the bell tower in town, so that I could get some amazing aerial views.
This is the same town from the opposite direction.  My favorite part of this town is that I had the best chocolate I have ever eaten in my life.  Nothing will ever compare.

Love Always,
