Another beautiful Piazza in Florence...just watch out for the taxis, vespas, and bicyclists. Beautiful statues and history in the piazza. Restaurants in the piazza, although we did not try any of them.

This was the highlight for us on our trip through Florence. I have never seen such a beautiful church since St. Peters in the Vatican area. The dome was beautiful and Brunolaski the Architect was very gifted with this church.

The piazza and the basillica are beautiful -- the sparse interior was a surprise -- and having a knowledgeable guide made it fascinating. To see the interior without a guide, get there by 9:30 to stand in line in the morning.

The amazing gothic accents of the duomo are seen in this piazza . They're currently cleaning the stone work so be prepared for some scaffolding, and the piazza is quite busy ("bustling")!

You can't miss this giant duomo! It seems like its the center of everything! Buy the ticket and take the 400 stairs to the top of the Bell Tower... Might want to bring a bottle of water but no that there is no restroom at the top! Great close up view of Florence but a real workout... the stairs are... More

With the famous Duomo and baptistery right in the middle what do you expect but grandeur and staggering architecture. Best observed early in the morning before the swarming masses fill the place up mind.

Nicely located in the middle of the city center. Served as a nice meeting point. Have to admit though that the outside architecture is amazing, but inside not as good as the outside. Maybe I am spoiled by St Peter's Basilica.

So unique in it's exterior design and so much history. I have never seen anything else like the exterior. It was a great landmark for helping get around as well as it stood as a solid beacon.

Wow! The Duomo and Camapanile are breathtaking works of art, when we walked into the Piazza these two buildings are phenomenal to look at. The Baptistery was covered in scaffolding while we were in Florence. But that didn't affect the ambience at all. The Piazza has shops, cafes, little tourist souvenir barrows, and horse and carriage rides. We were lucky... More
