It is the centre of all activities. Loads of people around from all parts of the world. Nice coffee bars around and a good place to sit and pass time.. We enjoy staying there...

The Piazza is rather confusing, with people everywhere, lines for the various parts of the Duomo criss-crossing each other, ticket offices spread about and the Baptistry in the middle of the whole mess. That said, the view of the magnificent Duomo is extraordinary, so this crazy busy Piazza cannot be underrated. There are a few cafes with outdoor seating on... More

after seeing the lines to the entrance, we almost didn't go in, but got in line anyway. luckily, it moved pretty fast and we were only waiting about 15 minutes to enter. it was well worth the wait and we enjoyed all the artwork and architecture . we did not go to the museum downstairs, but others said it was...

Visit the Duomo, then sit back and enjoy any number of café venues and people watch! Food was great at all three stops we made.

Piazza del Duomo is my favourite square in Florence. It is always enjoyable. Spending time around Duomo is great, there is always something going on. You can seat at a cafe around Duomo or sit down on the floor. Enjoy your time by looking at Duomo,

Florence is a city in my experience where you can easily get around on foot and enjoy some of these sites without actually having to queue for hours to go inside unless you particularly want to see it for yourself. We stayed in the Piazza del Duomo ( which was very noisy at night) and the queues started for this... More

Each Dome in Italy is beautiful and unique but Florence Dome is astonishing. I was gazing at this beautiful masterpiece for more than 2 hours, observing every detail. The interior is amazing as well. I felt in love with Florence, it has so much beauty, art and romance.

We didn't go into the dome, tower, or church. But it is very enjoyable to look at the exteriors with the elaborate carvings and embellishments. You can see Ghiberti's Bronze doors as well.
