The Duomo is the most recognizable building in Florence. The inside is not as impressive, but still worth a look around (free). The Baptistry is there also, but was closed and they are working on the famous bronze doors, so we only got to see a portion of it (get postcards). The different colors of marble used on the church... More

We spent 3 days in Florence, we had to walk by this very Piazza every day just to see these buildings. Incredible workmanship. If you like exercise make the trip up the 400 stairs to the top of the Duomo, you will be amazed. It took us 30 min and was worth every minute.

Love, love, love the Duomo!! Florence's Duomo sits right in the heart of the city's cultural wealth and happenings. The surrounding piazza and side streets are lined with traditional cafes and shops oozing with local charm!

Stunning, stunning building. Got spooked by trip up to the dome but my kid loved it. Am amazed by such beauty and architectural genius.

It is a delight that a church as magnificent as the Duomo has this large plaza in front of it (even though the Baptistry occupies a big chunk of the space). Mostly closed to traffic, you can walk the entire perimeter of the church, plus the Baptistry, lost in the neck-craning views. The plaza, large as it is, can get... More

Being up close to genius and a sense that all things are possible. Even this close to "off" season there is a crowd, so get there early.

Wow, the views to be had in this Piazza are amazing. We found ourselves drawn back here with our eyes skywards looking at the amazing sights on view. You have got to get here to appreciate the brilliant architecture. Of course there are crowds here, that's to be expected, but it in no way spoils the occassion. Fantastic.

The Duomo is quite eye-catching, so the square is always full of visitors. In summer, the queues to visit can make it hard to move about. Definitely a must-see location.
