To be honest, I thought the outside was cooler than the inside. Either way it's super great, but I'm not sure I would deal with all the crowds again for it.

The place is really the center city of Florence, I visited it in december and there was still a lot of people so my advice is to go there early in the morning if you do not want to make too much queue. Cathedral is...More

It’s a nice square where you’ll probably pass through if you’re going to see the church. There are lots of stalls around and some really nice bars to stop and get a drink or food.

what an amazing buiding, its all made of marble, green pink and white, when you go far you see like it is grey, the battistero di San Giovanni and the Campanile di Giotto. We wanted to climb it using the stairs but it was booked.

It took me a while to locate this building, although we could see it in the background from a distance! The closer I got the more detail came to light! It’s actually quite impressive! Made with a awful lot of effort and perfection. The photos...More

This piazza is not as large or as wide open as those in Milan or Venice. With the Duomo so huge, and then with the Baptistery next door, there just isn’t a lot of wide-open space. It makes more sense finding out the Baptistery was...More

The historic piazza with Cathedral di Santa Maria Del Fiori, Giovanni's Baptistry, Giotto's Belltower. Huge spaces and plentry of good restaurants. Just sit here and take yourself back to the medieval times.

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

I was unable to get a reservation for the dome as I was only there four days. You need to be there six days to have access to tickets for the dome if you are using the Firenze card because it is in such demand. Book and pay... More

Inside the Duomo, yes, but on top of the building, there are stairs. So it is not very accessible.
