The View from the Campanile
After ascending to the top of the Dome, we decided to get some more exercise, and walk to the top of the Campanile (Bell Tower). Between the two high spots, we climbed a ton of stairs that day. Ironically, everybody queues up for the trip up to the top of the dome, but to really see the dome itself, you have to go up the bell tower, which was almost empty.
Fillipo Brunelleschi's statue looks forever towards his greatest accomplishment.
