To the Top of the Duomo

I promised you several months ago a photograhic journey to the top of the Duomo in Florence.  Here it is.

Beginning of the many, many stairs

We saw these fellows at a landing somewhere on the way up

Looking down from a balcony (not all the way up yet)

This is a terrible picture but it gives you an idea of how narrow some of the passageways were.
Part of the fresco on the ceiling — painted by Vasari, I found out later

Around the corner again and again

Up the steep stone steps

The views at the top — worth it!

Looking down

Afterwards we rewarded ourselves with some gelato
A leather purse was my souvenir
