It is full of amazing historical architecture. It is a cultural delight. During my stay in Florence I was always in awe whenever I was in the piazza.

The Duomo building, most of it recently beautifully cleaned, is gorgeous and rather striking. But the piazza is very crowded, and led with stores and eateries (bars, gelato shops and such) that charge ridiculous amounts for their wares. A spritz on the piazza will set...More

Very crowded. Worth visiting as part of the art viva walking tour to get easy access. A long wait in the hot sun otherwise.

The interior of the Duomo pales significantly to its phenomenally decorated exterior. Walk all around the masterpiece of architecture and do not miss even one of the stunning details that make this piazza such a favorite.

Packed, packed, packed! But you can't go to Florence without spending some time here admiring the Duomo, the splendid Baptistry and the utterly awesome bell tower.

Like the rest of Florence, this place is worth looking around and absorbing the wonderful culture. The Piazza offers the visitor a selection of interesting photo opportunities, as well as entry into a number of attractions.

This is not only a magnificent piazza, containing three buildings and a crypt of immense art and religious value but also an exhilarating feeling to climb the narrow stairs to the top of the dome and to the top of the bell tower. Spectacular views...More

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

You can visit it any time of the day. The restaurants in the piazza are open till late and you can always walk down the nearby roads and find lots of stalls for road side shopping.
