Sit outside the Irish Pub with a beer close at hand and let the misters cool you down as you watch the tour groups trudge by and feel good about yourself!

Tickets are sold across the street from Duomo. Lots of steps, not for faint of heart... worth the steps to have the view!

Piazza del Duomo is amazing you can stand and admire the Duomo - Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiore as it is beautiful. Definitely take your camera so you can capture stunning pictures of the Duomo.

We went around the Christmas holiday, so it was very busy. It's also full of street vendors which is not fun because they pretty much attack you. So you just need to be strong and keep walking. But it's a fun place to walk around.

The Piazza del Duomo is a great place to sit outside and have a glass of wine or a gelato! It is busy, great for people watching and there are cafes and gelato places with outdoor seating. The outside of the duomo is breathtaking.

The Piazza del Duomo was hot and packed with tourists wandering and queuing all day. The best times to visit to look around is early morning or in the evening.

Being in this Piazza is just like a dream. All buildings are carefully built and sculptured. You wont be able to decide in which direction to look with the amount of art you see.

The line was way too long for me, but I enjoyed the beauty and architecture walking around the Duomo. This is a great sight in the heart of Florence. From here, you can wander the streets, shops and restaurants.
