Weekly Photo Challenge – Reward

The stunning views of Brunelleschi’s  candy-cane dome and all of Florence and the surrounding countryside – this was our reward for climbing the 414 steps to get to the top of the adjacent bell tower. The steps were tall, narrow and at certain points, downright hazardous!  But the views from the top were a fitting reward. Now all we had to do was brace ourselves for the walk down the stairs….

        It was indeed. The dome was covered in snow and looked like a cake sprinkled with icing.
