It is a really an awesome a place, maybe something like this you can imagine it in a film like the The Arabian Nights, when we visit it it was under some renovation works, but anyway it is a place that if you go to Florence you should not miss it.

I was just walking around from the Santa Maria Novella without any map and ended up at the Front facade of Piazza del Duomo. The view was quite capturing.

This is a terrific place, the building is just enormous, and so beautiful. Strangely, I found the interior very bare. Not a patch on San Marco further up the road. To me the exterior is the star of this attraction. Lots of great streets coming off, to find lunch or just browse the many leather shops here.

Duomo is really impressive. Piazza is pretty small and overshadowed by Duomo. You do of course have to go through it to get to Duomo.

Just breath taking! Love the color and the Dome. It is free to go into the Cathedral, but need to get there early to avoid the crowds that build around lunch time. Plenty of places to eat in this area.
