One of the best views of Florence is available from Piazzale Michelangelo – this sits high up above the river on the south bank. We have climbed up here before during the day (not a pleasant experience in the heat), but have never been up at night to look at the lights – until this visit. I have always been told that it is a fantastic view at night, and it is, and the walk up in the cooler (still over 30) night air is much more pleasant!
Being a bit of a photography geek I wanted to try and get some night shots – to include the Duomo which is fully lit up and night. Considering I was using a micro 4/3rds Olympus EP-1 I and the Duomo is probably half to three quarters of a mile away I don’t think the result is at all bad?
