so worth it

463 steps to the top of Bruneleschi's amazing dome, 
but I do it again and again for this view of the rooftops 
of Florence.  Besides, all that climbing means no 
guilt whatsoever over the copious quantities of pasta, 
wine, and gelato that will no doubt be consumed later! 


  1. Even without that spectacular view, I'd tackle the climb for the sake of the foodie rewards. I'm about to make pizza for dinner in the absence of pasta and gelato.

  2. Stunning, Alexa! Oh, how I love those red clay rooftop tiles... hope you are enjoying your vacation.


  3. Oooh, Gelato! that sounds so good right about now. I think I could eat it on the coldest day in Italy - sitting by a cozy fire somewhere of course.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
