Photographer's Note

This is a photo taken from the top of the magnificent "Duomo", the cathedral of Florence and its gigantic "Cupola", a work of Brunellecshi. If you want to reach there you have to go to a side entrance of the cathedral and then climb some 440 steps through narrow arcades. It was one of the many times in my life I decided to quit smoking, but that didn't last long. Anyway, the view is absolutely rewarding, breathtaking (not because of smoking) and you can have an almost 360 degrees view of the beautiful "Capital of the Rennaisance". This tall building in the foreground is the 82 meters high "Campanile di Giotto", another excellent "watchtower" with some 30 steps less to climb, than the Duomo.
