This morning we climbed up the 463 steps to the top of the dome of the cathedral, where we could see spectacular views of Florence. The steps are quite steep in places and very narrow - I thought it was one way until we headed downwards, and we ran into loads of people climbing up!

Hayley here. This week we've been to Italy, Greece, Turkey and Croatia.

Again not nearly enough time in Florence – too much to see too little time! But we certainly packed in what we could (pity we couldn't sneak down the road and see Boticelli's Venus, but you can't have everything!)
We did a walking tour of Florence, and heard much about the history of the place, the buildings and how, in centuries gone by, it had the 2nd largest population ...
