The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore

Finding such a view of this beautiful basilica was really extremely difficult, almost after 2 hours of searching and roaming around Florence I finally found a spot that offered a great view, but the issue was that the restaurant was closed and I had to wait for couple of hours to be able to shoot it, unfortunately I was traveling to Rome that day and I did not have that luxury to wait and loose one more day, since everything was planned beforehand. So I gave up, and started doing things that were not related to photography, together with my girlfriend I went into shops and different spots, just like a regular tourist. At some point I get into a mall really close to the basilica and saw that the terrace was open and i decided to go up for a coffee at least. I have to admit, the espresso was great, but being able to see the basilica and having this great view was even better.
