Entry to the Cathedral its free, but queue is ultimately long so be prepared if you are not there early. The Duomo train station is very near, so it is easy to find. I recommend either going early morning or late afternoon as the queue to the Duomo becomes extremely long around midday. But the views from the top of... More

Florence is well worth a visit but if you want to climb the Bell tower and Dome make sure you purchase a priority ticket, for 4€ extra you don't have to queue, well worth it.

Several of the museums are closed until Autumn 2015 due to the establishment of a new exhibition. I that it wasn't possible to buy separate tickets for the Baptistry, Duomo and Bell tower.

Good architecture. It was crowded though because of Duomo. Good paintings to be seen inside the cathedral. Shops and restaurants nearby although a little costly. Just walk 5 minutes away from Duomo and you will get good ones.

Spent a lot of time in and around here. Worth going in to the Duomo. We sat a couple of times in the Piazza, once for lunch and another for an evening drink.

All the squares in Florence are beautiful and they take us back in time. The architecture is beautiful and there are great restaurants every were. You should try to go during the Easter time to see the celebarations at this square

Try to go upstairs in to the tower and to the cathedral. Nice view at the night. Just front of the main square you can find toilets and ticket office

Probably one of the most crowded areas of Florence with the Duomo attractions and nearby shops and restaurants but it is the heart of everything and the Duomo is breathtaking must see. If you are wanting to visit any of the attractions however, the process of getting tickets and knowing which line to stand in can be a bit confusing.

The Plaza del Duomo is a wonderful place to take photos but go early or late as it becomes so crowded with people at busy times that, even in that huge space, it can be impossible to take a decent. Mind you, it is hard to avoid the crowds or the huge number of hawkers selling touristy trash. Either way,... More
