Looking forward to my trip to Florence, Italy by starting to sketch in my travel journal. I plan to hike up both this Duomo and the Campanile (Giotto's Tower). The dome is 330 feet high and the tower is 270 feet high. According to an online converter I found, that means the dome is 30 stories high and the tower is 24 stories! There are NO elevators. YES, I have been exercising in advance. I wonder if there are t-shirts that say, "I survived Brunelleschi's Dome"?
