Climbing the Duomo (Dome and tower)

I got Assassin's Creed 2 for Christmas last year and played through the whole thing before January 3. On the third, I flew to England to start my semester abroad. Thanks to the English school system, I have no classes throughout April and am traveling around Europe with a couple friends.

We're now in Florence and our hostel is actually pretty close to the Duomo, and I want to climb it. There's some scaffolding on the side of the building: this should get me up to the first major area. The bell tower doesn't have anything like that, so I'll try it after I try the dome.

Expect another report in a few hours after I try climbing.

Apparently you aren't allowed to climb the building's exterior. After talking with some very angry Italian police, I stood in line and waked up 462 steps to the (almost) top of the dome. LAME.

That must be one of those things they don't teach in the English school system. ;-)

Florence was a failed experience. Now I'm in Venice. I haven't learned how to jump while climbing, so this could be even more of a failure. I'll check back tomorrow night (or later, since this hostel only grants me 30 minutes of internet total).

Now that I've escaped my imprisonment*, I can finally say that Venice was a total failure.
