YOU WILL NEED TO QUEUE! There is no avoiding the queue unfortunately. It opens at 10am and we started queuing at 9:15 by which time the queue was already quite lengthy. By 10am, the queue was already going round the back of the cathedral so you need to plan accordingly. Once you are inside though it was worth the wait. You will need to pay extra for the Bell tower and the crypt.

This is really is a place you must visit if you are in Florence. Not only for the architecture, the history and the cultural importance of this complex of buildings but also the views of the city from the top of the dome and the bell tower. These are two climbs of more than 400 steps - but both were well worth it. Booking is essential - if you wish to avoid the lengthy queues.

The dome is such a wonderful building, even much more interesting to admire on several occasions over the day, because the different light builds so different impressions. Inside it’s simply decorated, compared to the facade. I also recommend to climb up the cupola!

It's worth an hour in the queue to admire the architecture, paintings, sculptures and dome icons. You will be exhaled.

There are a couple of times in life where you will experience "I don't have words" expression.
Visiting this attractions sums that up perfectly.
The colours are vibrant and fabulously beautiful.
A must visit in Florence.
