An amazing Duomo, it is easy in Italy to over "Duomo'd" but if you want to see any, put this with Milan at the top of the list. It is so impressive and definitely of huge architectural significance. Hard to believe they could build such an amazing building so many hundreds of years ago.

This square is always crowded. First go to Number 7 to buy your €10 ticket which allows you to enter the Baptistery, which is Ok, the Cathedral, fenomenal and the Tower. Be prepared to stand in line for a while (we went during Easter time) and to climb 414 steps but the view is worth it.

Marble and doors to Baptesta are world class - place is slightly below Taj Mahal in grandeur ! Climbs to top of tower worth the effort with fines views and non claustrophobic curved stairways

You could stand in the Piazza for a couple of hours admiring the Cathedral and still not take it all in. Of course, the cathedral dominates the Piazza. And, tourists dominate the rest of the Piazza. We were somewhat lucky as the cold and drizzle thinned out the crowds. The gilded Gates of Paradise (reproductions since the real ones are... More

Scudieri is alive and well with some superb drinks and pastries and some beautiful pama violets to savour. The cakes and biscuits are fabulous and of course the view of the duomo is just lovely

This piazza/square holds both the Basilica and the Gates of Paradise on the Baptistery. Both awesome!

A tricky one to rate, of course the Duomo and surrounding buildings are stunning, hence the very good, because it is a must see. That said, it is full of beggars, counterfeit sellers and people trying to stick selfie sticks in your face. Keep you bags and wallets close, the crowds are bustling and a prime target for pickpockets. The... More

Everyone knows that you need to see il Duomo when you come to Florence and for good reason. I didn't bother spending my time waiting to get in or climb to the top, which some say is worth it, but you could spend hours just appreciating it from the outside. Truly incredible work of art and architecture

Great place to eat, take in the impressive Duomo and view the many talented artists. Plenty unofficial sellers as well and watch your belongings.

Touristy at its worst, but the architecture and artwork worth the trip there tenfold. Also a very interesting vibe, a people place. It is a place that overwhelms the senses.
