April 23rd

Ready to play?

Since everyone’s staying home, let’s pretend we’re off on an International trip.  My books are set in places I’ve visited, and I’m sharing some of my photos this month.

Identify the location of the picture below.  Remember to register your answer by clicking “Leave a comment” at the top of this page and then write your reply (I’ll approve comments at the end of each day and reveal the locale in the following blog). 

Correct answer receives a point.  If you’re not certain, go ahead and guess! I’ll be posting a different photo, along with a hint, every day this month.  Whoever has the most points on April 30th will receive a prize (you’re not winning the lotto, dear people, but I will mail you a small gift which will include a modest Amazon card).  In the event of a tie, a randomly generated number will decide the winner. So, be sure to check back here each day, & let’s see who can . . .

Name That Location:

Hint: Known for art and museums, Forbes Magazine ranks this city as one of the world’s most beautiful. Its cathedral’s dome is the largest brick dome on earth. The birthplace of Michelangelo, it was also the seat of power for the powerful Medici family. In addition, Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the region and received his early education here. It is believed that the subject of the Mona Lisa posed in this place for the famous portrait. There’s much to see here, but it’s uncomfortably hot in the summer! Below is the city’s cathedral & the bottom picture shows the details of the building’s top pediment. Name the city.
