For my last birthday, I climbed the 1,000,000 steps to the top of Florence’s cathedral with a friend who shares a January birthday. Even though we live in a world where the word “awesome” is overused to the point of oblivion, I can only describe the duomo experience as awesome.
Unfortunately, I have been negligent in getting my pix and videos posted! I’m trying to catch up! I’m only about a year (11.5 months to be exact) late. Oh well…I’ll try to do better in the future.
First, let me share this Youtube video with you, because it captures how I felt!!
Before ending this very long post, I want to add a photo I came across of a 1940s visitor at the top of the dome
