Scenes from inside the Duomo

The ticket to the Duomo costs euro 15 and includes also the renewed Museo dell’ Opera del Duomo and the Battistero, if you are able to visit them within 48 hrs !

I never meant to climb to the top of the Duomo in Florence, but then I did. And, as often happens while traveling, this accident turned into a very special memory. I wandered the same tight turns and corridors as Duomo’s mastermind Filippo Brunelleschi and his workers. I even saw tools — some of them original! — used during construction.

Want to know how I accidentally climbed to the top of Brunelleschi’s engineering marvel? Here’s my story! For a well-written, quick read of the Duomo’s construction, I recommend Ross King’s Brunelleschi’s Dome.


Very happy to be at the top!

 I invite you to sign my guestbook, and to join me on Facebook, where I share often about Italy! This post first appeared on Prayers and Piazzas.
