Such a beautiful plaza to walk through. I would highly recommend visiting during the off season. The plaza and the streets were filled with people, but everything still felt accessible. I'm sure that during the tourist season this place is jammed.

This was so much fun with our tour guide. I would have never had the information, history or any of the great knowledge if our tour guide wasn't there...she was born and raised in Florance. What a great place!

We spent some quality time here sipping wine and enjoying gelato whilst taking in the sights and sound of this beautiful piazza. It's worth slowing down, sitting here, taking some photos and enjoy being there for a few minutes, appreciating the scale and scope of history into which you are immersed in that moment. One of my favorite memories is... More

The place was bustling with tourists. Its like stepping into history, Fantastic atmosphere. Lots of salesmen selling selfie sticks. Best way to explore Florence is on foot. Buy a ticket for the Cathedral, Museum as well as the Clock Tower. However searching for the Ticket Counter was troublesome. Locals will keep telling you to go to a Gate No. 7.... More

I'm not a big church admirer but this was like stepping into a movie set. The outside was spectacular and inside a marvel of workmanship.

Amazing view just by walking around the church cathedral. Try to get inside the church and if Im not mistaken there was a museum at the basement. It is a nice way to end a day here.

We spent a little bit of time here every day during our 6 day stay in Florence. It is such a gorgeous place to spend time and to admire the Duomo while sitting on a patio having some wine. A lot of musicians playing here as well. If you're lucky you can have one playing close to the patio you're... More

Every time you see it you are amazed by the architecture, the details and the intricate design. Whether from the outside or from the inside there is something special about this church. You are always amazed when you encounter it, both during the day and at night.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
