Florence - Duomo
Saturday, November 04, 2000; posted by Lisa

Pictures inside and outside the Duomo in Florence.

View of the Duomo di Santa Maria del Fiore from one of the 463 steps that make their way to the top of the dome. Paris climbed each one of these steps and emerged outside at the tippy top, from which he called Mom and Dad Roselli! This is the sound from the top (27.3k).

The narrow, low-ceilinged stairs on the climb down from the top of the dome. Knuckle-scraping work when others passed going the opposite direction.

Looking down into the cathedral from about the height of the base of the dome.

Face-to-face with the figures painted on the dome. Bold lines make the scenes easier to see from down below.

Paris's view from the top of the dome — dome, baptistery/Battistero, bell tower/Campanile, city. From the top of the dome you can hear the ringing of the bells (30.5k) from around the city.

Our first view of the Duomo di Santa Maria del Fiore, just a short walk from the hotel. Perfect weather for day 1 in Firenze. Hear (42k) the town.

Another view of the dome from the climb to the top.
