Florence Duomo Cupola and Campanile



With our mornings free, we’ve been trying to do something instead of sleeping until our 11:20am class. This week we climbed the campanile one morning and the cupola (Duomo of Florence). I just have to say that the depictions of hell in the cupola are far more interesting to look at. Why is that?

Both the campanile open fairly early, 8:30am, here are the hours. On a nice crisp fall or winter day you can easily have the place to yourself the first ½ hour.

  1. That's because Hell is waaaaaay more interesting than goody-two-shoes in heaven. who wants to hang around boring people playing by the rules? cheaters, haters, complainers...always the more entertaining...
