Falcons Nesting on Florence’s Duomo


As if there isn’t already enough to see in Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, now bird enthusiasts have another reason to become Italy enthusiasts as well:

A pair of falcons have chosen an unusual home to nest and bring up their young – the top of Florence cathedral.

A webcam has been set up to follow the peregrine falcons … Bird lovers and others can follow the birds’ movements in the run-up to the appearance of the first additions to their family, expected towards the middle of this month.




So if you’re into falcons or Florence, these webcams might be a fun thing to check in on everyday. You’ll find the webcam here and here, and there’s a story about an older pair of falcons on the Duomo here.
