During the day especially the morning this piazza is crowed with tour groups that block the way and spoil the views. However, early evening or even after dark the Duomo is well lite and looks just as spectacular.

Probably the busiest Piazza in the area with the Duomo commanding the space. Every tourist in Florence will spend time here visiting the Duomo or just appreciating the splendour of the building from the outside. It can be difficult to cut across the piazza with the large crowds and the many tourist stalls but it is a must.

I was absolutely stunned by the architecture and art work. In my opinion only beaten by Vatican in a Rome. Highly recommended well worth a visit. You will not be disappointed.

The Duomo is definitely an impressive church, both inside and out. The Duomo dominates the Florence skyline, and features great architecture that one can just wander around staring at. Unfortunately the Baptistry was completed under scaffolding, and due to it's proximity to the Duomo it ruined some ideal photo opps. We somehow visited at a time of day where there... More

This place is crawling with tourists. Buses drop people off from the cruise ships, it is almost like waves coming ashore, things calm down and you can move through the square when another umbrella or paddle with a number bearing guide walks away with their 30 or so people only to see the next tide of arrivals hit the square....

A fun area with many tourist spots all in a small area. The Duomo Plaza or Piazza del Duomo has the the Duomo, Bell Tower, Baptismal and other sites all within a 2 square block radius. Buy the Florence Pass and get all of these sites for a discounted price. Just make sure to see them within the 24 hour... More

Absolutely beautiful. The colors of the Duomo pop out at you. My fiance and I loved seeing it randomly pop up over the buildings around the city. Definitely worth a stop while in Florence.

Do not miss. The stained glass is beautiful and it is free to enter. Set right in the center of historic Florence.

BEAUTIFUL AND BREATHTAKING. The beautiful structure stands tall in the midst of everything around it. No matter what angle you stand from, no matter if there are millions of tourists passing by, just being in Italy and being able to see such an amazing structure is worth it.
