Our final day in Florence, we figured the best place to encapsulate our visit was from the sky. Or at least as close as we could get to it. Sooney and I climbed to the top of Brunelleschi’s dome atop the Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore, the major cathedral in Florence.
After 243 steps in a narrow channel, we summited to a breathtaking panorama. The whole adventure took only an hour, and we’re forever grateful we didn’t attempt this in the summer (what with crowds, heat, etc.).
On to Poppi, Casentino, Tuscany
