You have to see this place to appreciate the architecture. We spent some time taking in the art, and just enjoying the artwork.

It is a very beautiful square which anyone must see in Florence. Here you have the imposing Duomo, Giotto's belltower and the Battistero with its awesome Porta Del Paradiso a masterpiece by Lorenzo Ghiberti

The outside is really beautiful and every inch of it is decorated. The shapes of the buildings are really interesting but unfortunately the inside is a complete let down. The inside was completely underwhelming apart from the paintings on the inside of the dome. We bought tickets on the website before hand so we could go into the crypt. I... More

This square is big and it has a lot of places to see. I was lucky enough to go there a few days after they cleaned the Duomo so it was so bright that it took my breath away

The piazza has the duomo, the cathedral and the bell tower all together. The cathedral is breath taking. You can sit and stare at it forever. Could not think of climbing up to the bell tower. It was my favorite spot to sit with a coffee/ gelato and gaze at the beautiful buildings. Its a MUST GO!

Not really much to see or do here other than to perform the obligatory photo stop. The main building is free entry but others have a charge so spend your time and money wisely.

This is just one of the most stunning buildings I have ever seen. If you want to go inside you do need to cover shoulders and knees. You can purchase wraps at stalls around the square for approx 10 euros.

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.
