The piazza is located directly in front of the Duomo and houses the Baptistery. It is the best place to view the front of the Cathedral and where you queue for entry into the Cathedral. Surrounding the piazza are numerous shops and restaurants.

The Duomo is the centre of Florence, and this Piazza blends into the Piazza del Duomo. Some nice shops and restaurants surround, and the Battistero borders this Piazza to Duomo, you can't miss it

not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
