Great central location to stop for a coffee. The Baptistry was being renovated so we sadly didn't stay for very long. Fairly good shopping for those that want some retail too!

This thing is huge!!! Easily several city blocks. The structure took decades and thousands of people but it looks as if one delicate hand did the whole thing. I just stared at it for ages! It's 10 euro to get inside, I suggest going to the top of the dome, it's a lot of steps but the view is worth... More

The building is soo beautiful that you have to be there and inhale the beauty and atmosphere. Its a pity that there is mostly a part of the building covered for restauration

It is a lovely experience to sit & enjoy a drink in this beautiful piazza.The outside of the Duomo is enchanting & there is ample chance to people watch as it is always crowded.However, why don't the authorities enforce the laws against beggars & illegal street sellers as they do in Sienna? It is a great way to navigate through... More

The whole piazza leaves you with dropped mouth. Spend time there... Walk around, admire every building.

Be prepared for waves of people. The Duomo is one of the most distinctive landmark in Firenze, it's a magnificent art.

Absolutely beautiful. The only more amazing thing I've seen is Il Duomo in Milan. Much less crowded than Il Duomo in Milan, and definitely worth a visit.

The size, complexity of the exterior design elements and the color are truly something to behold. When we visited the Baptistry was behind scaffolding for restoration work. The only downside , and we found it the downside of Florence, is the crowds. We first visited the Piazza on a Thursday shortly before noon and the entire Piazza was shoulder to... More
