the following passage about a trip to Florence
and choose () the best answer (a, b or c) for questions
1 to 5.
most beautiful building I have ever seen
is the Duomo (Cathedral) of Santa Maria
del Fiore in Florence, Italy. Built over
a period of 170 years, it was completed
in 1466. It is most famous for its giant
cupola (dome), which was designed by Filippo
Brunelleschi and is regarded as an engineering
masterpiece of the Renaissance. The Duomo
is still the tallest building in the city
and can be seen from almost every position.
think many people would agree that it is
beautiful, but there are many famous buildings
throughout the world that others would choose
before the Duomo: the Taj Mahal in India
or the Colosseum in Rome, for example. But
I have chosen it because of the feelings
I had when I first saw it close up.
me explain. I was on holiday with some friends
in northern Italy and one day we decided
to make a trip to Florence. We arrived there
at lunchtime and walked around most of the
sites - the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery.
We could see the Duomo in the distance everywhere
we went, and it certainly looked impressive.
We then had something to eat, looked around
the stores for an hour and decided to go
back to the car. We had a map of the city
but I'm not too good at reading maps and,
well, we weren't lost but we didn't know
exactly where we were.
suddenly we turned a corner and there it
was: the Duomo, with its enormous cupola
right in front of me. I was so close I could
almost touch it. Usually when you visit
the Duomo you approach it from the front
and can see it getting bigger and bigger.
But we had been in a narrow side street
and had come across it by accident and I
was so overcome with its size and beauty
that I couldn't speak. I think I stood there
for a full ten minutes just looking at it.
is what I remember when I think about the
Duomo, and that's why it is, for me, the
most beautiful building in the world.
