463 Steps to the Duomo

In Florence, this is where we are breakfast in the mornings, 
note the perfect view of the Duomo from our rooftop terrace

The Duomo also served as a the backdrop for a free outdoor concert - with opera singers and a full orchestra, talk about a romantic atmosphere!!

Later we decided to climb to the top of the Duomo tower. 
You could see the entire city but Axel was more into pretending the binoculars were a friendly robot. 

The inside of the dome had the most surreal devil/Christian art: there were all these horned figures devouring babies and winged angels hovering above

I carried Axel up (and down) 463 narrow and treacherous steps . . .

I guess he'll thank me later when he returns as an adult.
