We’ve had a glorious week in Tuscany. We took advantage of our crisp and clear day in Florence and climbed the 460+ steps to the top of the Duomo (Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore) in Florence. What a view (and workout)!
This is a fantastic activity with school-age+ kids and was the highlight of this trip to Florence.
Kids love the challenge of the steps and given that the stairway is curvy, dark, and narrow, it makes for quite an adventure. Those with claustrophobia, however, may not be pleased …
