The group I was with had a guide that was on the team that discovered the basement area. Only half of it has been opened because the sand below is supporting the Duomo above and there is fear of a collapse.

Make the climb!! dont let any fear of claustrophobia stop you. there are little holes in the dome that allow light in, so you are never in the dark. you walk between the 2 domes and there are a bunch of steps, 462 to be...More

Quite the star attraction in the city, it is an impressive structure with an amazing history. Get a guide to explain the background and the details, else you will miss out. The bell tower is particularly impressive.

The main attraction of Florence. This place really stands out. Definitely one of the best cathedrals I have seen. The interiors are a little disappointing in comparison to the amazing exterior. The queue can be long but it moves fast. We got inside in 10...More

We visited here while we were on our vacation to Europe in March of 2013. We first spotted this iconic church at the top of the hill. Its easy to find too. We toured the inside and it was amazing.

Beautiful inside & out. The size & beauty will blow you away. Long tourist lines to visit the interior but worth the time if you have it.

Beautiful building, but some how the inside was slightly disappointing (when compared with the Duomo in Siena) Entry was free and there was a long very quick queue, so don't be put off. Be warned there is a dress code and its enforced. Recommended.

My daughter and I visited the Duomo - the Cathedral itself is lovely inside - the stained glass is large and blue with wonderful paintings on the rotunda. Climb to the top and you'll have two opportunities to get up close to the dome paintings,...More

This is a very intricately decorated Cathedral from outside in Neo-Gothic style. The line might seem long, but it's quick to get through. Make sure your shoulders are covered. Short shorts or skirts are not allowed in. Once inside, you can view the fantastic paintings...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
