The Duomo is the heart of Florence. Truly a beautiful place to tour. The plaza around the church is certainly worth a trip

Climbing the top of the dome of the Duomo was worth the exercise! Despite the baptistry being covered by scaffolding for renovations, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time walking through all the sites of the Piazza del Duomo!

Great place to be lots of cafes and a place where things are happening place the added attraction of the cathedral which has a very ornate exterior then the interior is a let down

We strolled through here every day. The architecture is amazing. There were no lines at the Duomo. It was easy entrance, even without advance tickets.

A beautiful building.... stunning pizza all around. You'll pay more for food and drinks though. You can walk up if you have the energy too

How could people graffiti a church. Disgraceful. And im not even religious. It was everywhere. Inside and then you wallk the 462 steps to the top and its everywhere outside. It really spoiled things. Go to the Vatican.

Under scaffolding and construction. Rained the day we were there. Lots of tourist junk being sold. Baptistry closed for reconstruction.

The Doumo is so massive it is hard to imagine. A careful walk around leads to the details on how it was made. Very beautiful. Long lines to get in unless you get a priority card which skips the lines.
