View of the City

10 Feb

We visited Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (The Duomo in Florence) today and climbed the 463 steps to the top of the Dome! It is the largest brick dome ever created, and is still one of the largest domes in the world created by Filippo Brunelleschi. You can see the Last Judgment frescos inside the Dome on your way up and then an amazing view of the city.
