Climbing Florence’s Duomo, with the huge dome by Filippo Brunelleschi, is one of the most physically challenging activities you can do in the center of Florence (short of walking around all day in flip-flops). Kids love it and adults appreciate the view. It is not for the faint of heart, nor the recently knee-operated!
If you try to find out, on the internet, how many steps the Duomo of Florence has, you will see numbers that vary from 414 to 463. So, it’s up to you to find out the real answer!
In this video, this guy climbs (and counts) the stairs, recounts a good history of the Duomo (with only one little error – can you spot it?), and shows us the view from above!
