Walking around the duomo and just spending time looking at this magnificent building is all you need to do. Apparently there was not enough money to complete the inside, so the inside is albeit large but quite stark. Getting in requires a long long wait, unless you accept the scam (which I admit I did) to pay 20 euros for... More

If there's one building you should see before you die - it's this one. It's gigantic - especially if you see it from far - it raised above the city like put there by a giant playing with toys. Go to the top of the Cupola - after 500 steps you'll be sweaty but extremely happy to see the view.

Largest Church in Italy. Awesome Fresco in Interior walls and the Dome, highlighted by Stain Glass windows. A Huge Golden Door lies ahead from the Exit gate of the Duomo , which makes for a Good Click !

We just rocked up on our last day in Florence. Entry to the Cathedral is free but if you wish to climb to the top of the dome or the Bell Tower you need to buy a ticket at the ticket office just a little way across from the Duomo. There is but one ticket and it allows you to... More

The Duomo is an excellent masterpiece of architecture. You must not miss it while in Florence. If you are not afraid of hights I would strongly recommend you go up the dome, where you can enjoy breath-taking views of the beautiful Florence, where you can take several pictures to make your friends at home very jealous... and, of course, making...

The area around in itself is beautiful. The Duomo is just another AWE moment. How all those years ago could they build something so awesome. The inside is just totally beautiful.

420 steps, but the view from the top is priceless! Don't miss visiting this wonderful cathedral. Cool and peaceful inside, with stunning art and great architecture, this should be no.1 on your sightseeing list.
