Up Close

November 28, 2009

I know what you’re thinking… “another Duomo post? really?” Well, yes. I do live two blocks away from it and is an incredible piece of architecture and Brunelleschi worked hard to earn the commission for the cupola. So to visit it once again, instead of just focusing on it’s exterior my friends and I finally went up the 400+ steps to the top.  Over half way the climb up you walk around the interior of the duomo to give you the chance to see the frescoes up close! They’re so detailed and interesting. From there you finish by climbing between the inside and outside of the duomo. Despite the climb up, it was definitely worth the view.

Being up there also gave me the chance to take some Ariel shots of some buildings (including the Duomo) as well as see the detailing of the cupola up close. Enjoy!

    A few years ago I had a holiday in florence and never managed to go up to the top. Looking at your pictures of the view I really wish I had. Fantastic shots

    You should make it your goal to return to Florence to climb the Dome. It’s really good to have the shots into the church and the close up views of the dome fresco.

    What a wonderful view from that tower. It gives a very good impression of the historic city.
