This past weekend the Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore) had shorter than usual visiting hours - 1:30 to 3:30 PM. I was hoping to go in to see the Ucello painting of Sir John Hawkwood after reading about him in A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century .
They had a posted sheet on top of the regular hours with the shorter hours, and they also have some new (new to me anyway!) information about being able to visit the terraces, which sounds very cool. Hopefully this is something I will do myself soon. Anyway - see the images below for more details.
