“Excellent Piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Plenty of places to sit and people watch or to look at the impressive cathedral. Very much worth some time when in Florence to sit and enjoy the surroundings.

“Beautiful at Christmas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The incredible lights, the friendly people, the huge Christmas tree, and the melodic bells from the Duomo. All that and delicious hot chocolate at your choice of dozens of gorgeous pastry shops. Dress warmly -- Buon Natale!

“Great for people watching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Grab a bottle of wine, uncork it, and grab a seat at the stairs entering the duomo. The people watching is so much fun! Street peddlers will try to sell you everything, just say no gracie!

“Worth the walk to the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This place is amazing. Walking around it and looking at the mastery of architecture and masonry is unbelieveable. We walked to the top of the Duomo and it's tower which was cool because you can see the Dome from the Tower. Worth the walk to the top of both!
