This is actually my favorite museum in Florence. The collection is wonderful and I especially like the remnants of the contest for finishing the dome and the bronze doors. Here you will get to see the actual baptistry doors, which are incredible. Be sure to learn the history behind the competitions. Very interesting.

It was under reconstruction when I visited, to it was not worthy at that time. However, La Piedad and the Golden Doors are impresive

Take the hop-on hop-off bus and it will take you to all the beautiful place that is worth it to see. Here you will find lots of people visiting the Museum so keep you wallet/purse in a safe place.

Had a great experience last year -- the original frames of the Baptistery doors are there and for that alone the museo is worthy of a visit. Unfortunately closed until the Fall.

We were disappointed that the museum was closed when we visited as it would have been included on the 10 euro ticket. We visited the museum last time and I was looking forward to a return visit and seeing Donatello's Magdalene, an amazing sculpture among other things. The museum is small which is a good thing as you can take... More

We went through this on a walking tour & due to the fact we had a great guide it was very interesting & informative. I think you need to have a guide going through this museum.

The ticket included Cathedral,museum,Bell tower 441 steps and Dome 463 steps all for 10 euros .While it was a physical effort to walk that many steps you have 24 hours from first using the ticket so you can shred the pain out .The view from the top of the Dome was amazing and well worth the effort.

We know that a lot of original art work from the basilica and the baptistry is presented in this Museum, but we had to give it a miss for construction works. Maybe we'll add to our rating next time...

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
