Duomo di Firenze
this place is so unreal
#florence #firenze #tuscany #toscana #italy #duomo #dome
We wandered if tomorow we would be able to get inside of the cathedral and on top of the dome
First we had to check how to get in. We stayed in a hotel, owned by Dutch. The staff looked Russian but had Italian names. They knew all the tricks.
Tickets could not be booked online, so we had to get there very early. Wooow
We was to get up there ↘️
The walk around the feet of the coupolo is impressive
Between 1210 and 1340 there was the cathedral without the roof or dome. Mess was done for more than 100 years in the open because nobody knew or dared to build a roof. Video National Geographic
Ultimately it was Filippo Brunelleschi to start building the Duomo in 1420 and to finish it in 1436. The building technique involved an internal and an external dome. In between the 2 domes, there is a walkway.
Narrow stairs inside of the coupolo. About 500 steps to reach the top. One of the tourists suffered claustrophobia and had to go back. All got more nerveous.
This view is unforgettable. You can wave to those on top of the Campanille, the tower of the cathedral
In Firenze they love heads pulling out of circles. You find them everywhere. We started calling them PEEPERS
Near to the cathedral with the Duomo, there is UFIZZI, definitly the most pleasant museum building i have been in
The natural light in Ufizzi, is unreal and makes you want to stay forever
