More than 450 steps, but well worth the lung-capacity to see the cathederal from such a height and tovirtually touch the ceiling frescos.

A quick visit, couldn't stand under the dome as it was roped off but it's a pretty amazing building when you first see it.

There was a little bit of a line the day we went to the Duomo but we waited the 45 minutes or so and made it to the entrance. We bought our tickets (can't remember the price but they only accept cash only, no credit cards) and we were on our way. The stairways were steep at times and some were a little tight because people exiting the top would be coming back down but it was worth the effort. The view is amazing even when the weather wasn't great. Highly recommended.

We stopped in early evening during Holy week. Flowers and candles were lit. From the outside one has no clue as to how impressive it is inside. Soaring ceiling, I wished we could have gone back in the next day but it was closed.
