Florence - view from the Campanile

Having walked all around the Duomo and then gone inside too we decided to go up the Bell Tower, the Campanile.   It was only 414 steps to the top. 

As it was a lovely sunny day and the sun was setting it made Florence look really lovely.




  1. Yes, there's nothing like afternoon sun in autumn to bring warmth and life to a photo. Lovely, lovely... Love the one of the tiny people on the steeple.
