NOTE: You need a ticket which has to be purchased in advance from the ticket office located behind the apse of the Duomo. We recommend the Florence Card, good for 72 hours, which gives you admission to almost every attraction in the city. You can...More

This was included in the 5 places around the Duomo ticket from Museums Florence. It is a truly lovely building and I think often missed by the huge queue for the church next door. There was no queue for this, an amazing space

Beautiful door that does not open, is only a copy, the original safely stored inside. Members of the Medici family as well as the poet Dante Alighieri and Renaissance nobles were baptized here. There is always a large group standing in front, be patient and...More

The Battistero di San Giovanni is very special. You find very fine paintings from diverse places of the bible. The things you see here, would you expect in the Duomo. Strange enough the Battistero is relativly more decorated than the Duomo/Cathedral

There are so many wonderful buildings in this central area that you almost get punch drunk. This is the classic black and white style. Everything is floodlit at night so do visit after dark too.

Here in the Pizza del Duomo, you might feel suffocated as everyone, including yourself, will try and take pictures and wait in long, relentless lines. This line is there but not as long and is definitely not as crowded as the Duomo. It is beautiful...More

The little basilica in itself is a beauty, even though it is somewhat dwarfed by the duomo and the campanile. But then it has its doors, and is the real star on the piazza.

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

Going into the Church part of the Duomo is free (it's a church), but if you want to visit the museum/archeological dig below it, climb the steps, or any of the other sites, you need the ticket. It is worth the money!
