A stunning perspective of the city (Florence) from the roof top of Duomo… when ever I look at this image, it feels like I am sliding off…

The city lies on the River Arno and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture. A centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the richest and wealthiest cities of the time, Florence is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages. It was long under the de facto rule of the Medici family. From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy.

    Amazing capture and brilliant perspective. I feel like I’m slipping off!

  • Thank you Roddy! It’s one of my favs too… it was fun clicking some shots from the tip of Duomo of beautiful Florence that surrounded us :) But like you had mentioned for your shot of British Museum… there were lots of tourists here too… we all had to keep moving quickly! ;) Thanks again though for visiting my page and appreciating this shot.
