Speechless when you see it up close. So beautiful that it stands out on almost every corner. At night, sit on a hotel patio and witness it majestic beauty. Thank you Florence

This place has to be experienced to appreciate it. Pictures don't do it justice. It's amazingly beautiful and wonderful to behold something this vast was created in the 1600s. Once you're inside, there aren't a lot of exhibits, so I wouldn't water money on a...More

The duomo is a really impressive place. Quite beautiful. It is not far from piazza where statue of David is situated so both can be done in a day

Wow. The outside of this church is breathtaking. I was stunned the first time we glanced at it. The inside was disappointing. Wish we could have just gone into the baptismo instead of this one. But their gift shop inside has some unique magnets for...More

A site to behold! If you can stand outside at 5 PM and listen to the bells, it will bring you to your knees!

The Duomo is a top 3 attraction for sure. It's so overwhelming that it's near impossible to describe. Recommend buy tickets online or in advance to avoid the long, long lineups. Beware street hawkers selling 'shortcut' tickets.

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

Yes you can line up and get into the Basilica for free. If you get there nice and early and line up you can beat the long queue at the main entrance of the Duomo between it and the Baptistry.
