Th e view is fabulous. If the lines for visiting are long a walk around it will be rewarding and my wife enjoyed visiting the leather shops. Easy to find as it can be seen from many parts of Florence or just follow the crowds.

Probably the biggest Duomo I saw my entire trip in Italy. However, the lines are insane. We didn't care to go in so we just stopped by to check out the duomo from outside. But regardless if you go at 8 AM, 10 AM, 3 PM, or 6 PM the lines go around the duomo and look like they take... More

Stunning, awesome, breath taking exterior. The queues were two plus hours long so we paid extra to "queue jump" with a guide.If don't mind queuing I'd recommend it as we didn't have time to linger....

Piazza del Duomo literally brought me to tears. This place was incredible. The massive church in the center of town with the city built around it was just amazing. A violinist and guitarist playing Andrea Bocelli in the Piazza on a somber afternoon just set the day off for me. Incredible site and plenty to do in this area. Great... More

This church is soooo beautiful. You must see the Bastistero and walk 463 steps to the Top. Good view of the city, worth doing it.

Very interesting. The architecture is amazing: observing the material used to build it and the design that looks like made for the future visitors. The internal is very amazing, no description could explain it, must be visited.

I didn't get inside the Duomo because the line was crazy, so book in advance if you want to get inside. Otherwise the piazza is a buzz and definitely worth walking around, soaking it up and taking lots of pics.

The piazza is great because you finally get close to the Duomo. You can look around and really get a feel for the place as it was hundreds of years ago. We went early to beat the crowds, otherwise you'll have to wait in a long line. Either way, it's not a bad place to wait around!

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.
