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.
