The building is superb not only from outside but also from the inside. I recommend watching the show Medici to build the hype of visiting the city (Available on Netflix). The place is not as crowded as in Roma.
The architecture of the building is simply stunning. I don’t think you can tire from looking at it.

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.

You do not need any tickets nor get in line to walk around Florence.You can start at the Piazza del Duomo and walk towards the Ponte Vecchio.Along the way ,you will pass Piazza Della Republica and Piazza Della Signoria.Turn a corner and it will bring you to Palazzo Vecchio with the replica of David in the Piazza. Walk along the river for a view of the river and the bridges. If you have time ,cross the Ponte Vecchio to the other side of the Arno.Not too far is the Palazzo Pitti.Enjoy.
