It was very exercising to climb up all the way to duomo but it was worth it. Especially the tour guide Irina explained thoroughly regarding the history of Dupmo and landmarks in Pirenze. Just be aware that it has lots of stairs to bear it. No pains no gains. ;)

Aufstieg war in langsamen Tempo, daher war’s sehr angenehm. Die Zeit oben auf der Kuppel hätte ruhig noch etwas länger sein können. Die Informationen werden per Mikrofon über ein Headset gesprochen. So muss man nicht immer bei der Gruppe stehen, und kann sich auch mal ein 2 m entfernen. Das fand ich immer sehr angenehm. Die Architektur ist beeindruckend und vor allem das Fresko fand ich wunderschön. (28 Jahre alt)

Unfortunately, we couldn't stay up there long. That was too bad. The guide was great.
