A visit to Florence must include the piazza. Here is one of the most beautiful churches in the world. It is an interesting sight to see, since it is tightly hidden within a myriad of many buildings that shield it unless you are almost on top of it. It was breathtaking for us as we turned the corner from one... More

Like so many landmarks in Florence. Simply amazing and overwhelming. I was thankful for visiting in early June before the massive summer crowds would have made it unbearable.

This is one of the best sites to visit in Florence. Don't miss it. The church is beautiful but not the most beautiful. The Baptistry is amazing and it helps to know a little of its history, including the bronze doors.

Surround yourself with beauty and history when you visit the Piazza del Duomo. Hear the cathedral bells that transport you through time. Admire the architure and climb to the top of the Dome for an amazing experience.

walking down the street, heading towards the baptistery, as we turned the corner, the first view of the Cathedral, is Jaw dropping, I recommend anyone to do that walk :)

The piazza itself is gorgeous, but what makes it even more special is the constant presence of street artists and musicians. A great place to people watch.

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.
