I never thought of the duomo in florence as that impressive from photos, until I was up close. The marble work is so beautiful, it is now one of my favorite churches in sheer beauty.

What architecture and history unfold in front of you when you walk into the Piazza del Duomo. The replica of the gilded brass doors of the Baptistry could be the finest door we have ever seen ( and it is a replica, made some 500 years later).

It should be on your bucket list, but it's a zoo during the day in the summer. Try to go early or late. Baptistry was under construction during our visit, so the exterior was not visible, but the church is amazing.

Long ques but worth the wait! Get a ticket to walk over the dome as well for some amazing views. This is worth every penny.

The exterior is worth an extra look and many pictures to be taken of. Queues are long but I guess worth it to some extent - Coming from a traveler, who have visited countless churches in Italy. Duomo Piazza is lively too, with many buildings around to have your must-take tourist pictures.

The outside view of Duomo is so awesome!! When I look at the Duomo, I could not close my mouth since it is so beautiful. Inside of the Duomo is great, but not great like the outside. It is really awesome.

The Duomo Piazza and the buildings it includes are beautiful examples of Renaissance architecture. The climb to the top of the dome is strenuous, but so worth the effort. The view is stunning and you will get a close up look at the ceiling.
