A very lively square during day and night. Lots of restaurants and cafeterias all over the piazza. Steps away only you will see the main attractions of Florence.

You will probably never forget the feeling when you first enter the Piazza. Like stepping into a fairytale, my breathe was taken away. The imposing Duomo is lit up at night - be sure to stop by after dark too.

This was a wonderful Piazza and was a treat to my eyes. The lovely green,pink and white marble of the Duomo, bell tower and the baptistry glistened from anywhere you looked from. The interior of the Duomo is plain but serene and is worth a visit. Even in December, the crowds were massive. We chose not to fight the long... More

Beautiful from the outside, but because its so popular they sell a multiple building pass. We would have rather just seen the Duomo and Basilica.

Simply did not expect this amount of intricate work and beauty. Did not go up the Duomo. Hate to think what this is like in the summer with the hordes of tourists and blaring tour guides.

The Piazza is the centre of Florence, a must see. Plenty of Shopping, coffee shops. The Duomo is amazing with a touch of the Medici family history. Great views from top of the Duomo, expect long queues but worth the experience.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does 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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
