Gorgeous area and beautiful building, but very crowded. There are lots of street sellers who want to sell you selfie sticks, prints of famous paintings and other souvenirs. But at least they are not too pushy and you just say no and walk on. Lots of pretty little restaurants, but it's better to go a little further down the side... More

This place is must visit to see the building with different look. White green colored building with few paintings and sculptures was very good. Its walking zone so young kids can be freely run if they feel as there is open space. One may find few vendors selling paintings on the road. Few painitng were really very good but never... More

I have been fortunate enough to visit this architectural masterpiece several times over 3 decades or more and each time stand before it in amazement at the scale and detail of the designs and intricacy of the marble cladding. Then there is the spectacle of the vast dome which Brunelleschi achieved through his genius for engineering. As if the Cathedral... More

Too big to see all of it. Just get close, watch for a while, walking around. Then you feel how magnificent it is.

The Duomo was pretty good, but barren as it was made in Goth Style. Expect the lines to be blocks long. It is wise to take a skip the line ticket tour.

The ambience at the piazza is amazing. We spent hours just sitting here, drinking wine and soaking the atmosphere - its Florence at its best.

It was only a 5min walk from our hotel (Hotel Sempione). Unfortunately the Duomo itself was closed at the time of our visit but the Piazza and buildings we enough to keep you enthralled. Definitely worth a walk to and experience for yourself.

Very expensive and very average restaurants with indifferent service and food that I wouldn't take home to eat.

The historic monuments here are amazing. The Duomo is unbelievable and the details in the architecture absolutely among the best of the world. Of course those who know the details will say that the truly genius achievement is the way the dome is built up to carry its own weight and the tower on top without any additional support. Fantastic.... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
